* CZECH mate --- with Label
« on: July 17, 2010, 09:49:50 AM »
 :hi: Hi:
I can say I know this one - Well, not really, but it has a label on it that say *Bohemia Glass, Made in Czechoslovakia*.  So OK we know that, but what year, and the maker anyone special?  (Help)??  About 7.75 inches tall, and 3.25 wide at the widest middle point.....and quite heavy.  A different yellowish color.  Is it older?  Whose label is that?  Being a Foil label, was it made years ago?  Do you have this label in the label gallery?

So can anyone help me further with info on this piece. Thxs  :kissy:

* psssssssssssst:  I only paid $4 for it, so I hope that was a good deal....
:fwr: Rose

It's by the Rosice factory part of the Sklo union group of Glassworks and is known as a Lens or Bullet Vase.

They come in two sizes and yours is the larger version these are harder to find. Also I don't have that colour way in that size so now I have turned slightly green with envy.

Re: Price, yes very well done because I paid £20-30 for mine.

I added an old picture of mine, got several more since I took it. :)

Rose, it's fabulous!  I've got a transparent one and a light blue one... I'll just add that it was designed by Rudolf Schrotter.  :)

Wow, Nemmie, that's quite a collection of bullet vases  :o!  My two small ones don't look so impressive now compared to yours  :'( ;D

I'd be happy with one more 15cm vase to add to my collection as three is such a lovely number.  (About a week ago, I had the opportunity to buy a transparent one for 15zl (just under 4 euro), but I passed only because I already have a transparent one.)

Thanks all.....glad to hear it is 1955, so 55 years old already (and older than me by some years)  :24:  Is this color just known as Yellow, or is there some fancy name for it??

The reason I ask this because I noted Jindrich had several different colors to yellow to almost gold color.

Beautiful all the colors Jindrich has -- and this is just my first piece.....and Sure has a good weight to it

 ;)

Well I didn't even know they made a brown one so I can add that to my want list but apart from that I need amethyst, clear and yellow for a full set as I have more than are in my picture now.

The large ones are a long term project though, well to be honest they all are. The thrill of the chase is part of the joy so I am not sure I would want to fill all my gaps all in one go. Thought you might have a lot though Jindrich :)

Oh and although they were designed in 1955 they made them for a very long time so your vase may be a lot newer than that, I am sure Jindrich can be more specific as to how long. I think the slight variations in colour are due to different amounts of ingredients being available at the glassworks but again I am sure Jindrich can tell us more.

Nemmie, you also know how to make a girl cry! You've got over 10 bullet vases?  :o


Here is a photo of my HUGE bullet vase collection...  IMPRESSIVE, eh?  In case anyone is feeling highly sorry for me, I do accept donations of any color...  :24:
