Tango Glass pulpit art vase - Stamped Czechoslovakia
« on: June 17, 2010, 05:18:13 PM »
Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone could identify this pulpit orange vase. The vase is 7.5" high. On the bottom it has been moulded with Czechoslovakia and another mark which I can not read. The camera also struggles to pick it out but it is there.  ;) I know that kralik marked their Tango glass with an acid mark but did they do them with a stamped mark.

I hope someone can help as it is such a lovely vase.

thanks
Sam

Thanks for that  :thup: I also found it on 20th century glass. But I still have no ideas about the factory. Or were they for sale at a czech tourist attraction in the 50's

Don't think you could run down a particular factory for these things - produced commonly, possibly with an eye to tourists.    If you look in Ruth A. Forsythe "Made In  Czechoslovakia" - page 10 (No. 21) there is a bright yellow example, same height and with marvered coloured chips around the bottom inch or so  -  not unattractive, and guess they made them in several colours, provided you only wanted them in yellows and oranges.  See another one as per the attached picture.  Some come with just a snapped and rough pontil mark, but obviously they come also with the country name on the base.    According to Forsythe these type of wares all come from the period 1918 - 1938  -  and were produced by the same artisans who originally made Bohemian, Moser and Austrian pieces  -  the idea being that these "bright colours brightened even the gloom of the Great Depression of the 1930's".

They certainly would brighten your gloomy room in the 30's.

So can you use the term tango glass?

I don't use the word tango for vases such as this. I consider tango to have two starkly contrasting colors of glass -- one for the body of the piece and the other for the details. If it is marvered in, then I don't consider it tango. I stick to the Loetz type pieces.

The stamped signature looks a lot like the Kralik acid mark, doesn't it? But the word arcs down instead of up as it does for the Kralik mark I'm familiar with. Very interesting.

Hi Txsilver,

I did think the same about the mark but i still cannot find anything about pressed marks. It's just weird I suppose and another one which will remain a mystery.

What looks to be an identical one also appears on page 58 of Czechoslovakian Glass and Collectibles (Book II) by Dale & Diane Barta & Helen M Rose but with very little information.  They quote 7" high, and cased.  Is yours cased?
