Hi,

I have two vases which I am stumped over!

Can anyone help please!

The first vase is a very heavy, 2.5kilos, 10" tall by 6.5" patterned design and looks amazing. So many curves in the right places... I sort of thinking that it may be sklo union but cannot find the factory or designer.  

The second is a very unusual footed vase, heavy at 750g, 8" tall by 5.1/4" at the widest point, catches the eye, lots of curves.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be fantastic

Thanks

Paul

My photos really do not do these pieces any justice!!!!

The second one is by Josef Inwald, circa 1930s (I have an image of it shown in a 1938 catalog) - pattern number 9045. In Carnival Glass I have given it the name "Circle Squared". Shown in marigold Carnival in "Carnival Glass The Magic & The Mystery 2" p 154.

I know the first one as well, but I don't have time right now to verify. I think it's Libochovice but someone else will confirm if I don't get back in time.

Hi and welcome to the board Paul  :)

Your first one is Libochovice, as Glen mentioned, # 3032 of their catalogue before 1958, see Marcus' book CD here: http://www.sklounion.com/

This one came in three heights, i.e. 175 200 and 255 mms

nice one!

You're always welcome Paul - it would be great (and sometimes helpful) to know where you live - would you please adjust your profile accordingly?  :thup:

Let we distinguish Joseph Inwald and Josef Inwald A.G. (company) please.

Joseph Inwald ( *28.1. 1837 Chýška near HavlĂ­čkův Brod)
Joseph Inwald according to old documents had declared Czech nationality, Jewish religion. He finished studies (physics, math, mechanical engineering) at Prague's Polytechnical University in 1859. In 1862 he bought together with his partner Simon Brandeis glass rafinerie (glass cutting) in Havlickuv Brod (30 employees), in 1874 glass rafinerie in SchĂĽtzendorf (now Dobronin) (300 employees). In 1876-77 he built his own factory in Prague - Zlichov (100+ empl). In 1893 Inwald bought glasswork in Podebrady (since 1895 200 employees), in 1901 glasswork in Radnice (160 empl).
In 1901 - 3 Inwald built glass factory in Grosspriessen a. E.(Velke Brezno) (200 empl), in 1903 he opened glasswork in Wien - Floridsdorf (200 empl). In the same year Inwald moved company headquater from Prague to Wien (Mariahilfestrasse 103). Finaly in 1905 he bouht old steelworks in Teplitz (Teplice) and in 1906 he opened glassfactory RudolfshĂĽtte (Rudolfova hut) (300 empl). Josef Inwald was very succesfull man, he has enobled by Kaiser Franz Joseph I in 1901 (Edler von Waldtreu). He was involved also in politic. In 1906 Inwald owned 6 factories with more than 2000 emplyoees. He died 19.5. 1906 in Wien.


After Joseph Inwald die the company Joseph Inwald A.G. has been grouded by his two sons - Rudolf Inwald (*18.10. 1864) and JUDr. Oskar Inwald.

A little bit of history about Inwald, with particular reference to the Jacobean (Lord / Milord) pattern can also be seen on my old website here:

http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/Jacob2.html

Lots more on Inwald on my old website as well as my books. (Our new website is "under construction" and being added to when time allows).

Jindrich, I feel that it has been a huge achievement to actually attribute many pieces of previously unknown glass to Inwald.  I have also researched and written about the history of Inwald. However, I am comfortable (and will continue) to attribute in a general way (in particular when I refer to Inwald's iridised glass) as "Inwald".

Great site Glen,
I found brief informatiion about Inwald in publication  Mirolsav Grisa - Rudolfova hut v DubĂ­ (ISBN 80-86971-15-5) published in 2006 by Avirunion. This publication is hard to find at was published in Czech only (with English and German brief summary).

It seems that major and possibly one and only (but I have not any serious proof for the meantime) in Inwald A.G. was Mr. Rudolph Schrötter, the father of Czechoslovakian pressed glass. To attribute piece to Inwald A.G. is great step forward, but I would like to see always and forever to have bounded collection "Lord" for example rather with name of Rudolf Schrötter than with Inwald to avoid misunderstanding.
Inwald A.G. was factory, Schötter designer.
