Ah Rose...  if only things were that easy!  But no money means no fun (if I did have the money, I'd contact our Jindrich and take him up on his offer  ;D).

I'll just have to be patient (I was offered a 1-year position as lecturer at the Pedagogical University of Krakow for the next academic year which, in addition to my current job -- which BTW is non-existant during the summer months and means no income for me until October -- will hopefully bring some extra money to my disposal  :X:)

November.  November will be my special glass-buying month.  Czech-glass buying that is.  Only about 90 days to go...  :24:

Yes, I have 13 now. 10 standard size and 3 Large. I also have another that is in two halves but displays well ;)

I just found a large Waisted in blue at a boot fair which made it worth getting up at 5:30am. This means that I now have 2 large Waisted and 5 small and my Rosice obsession continues! :)

Mine too, but not a big one like Rose's (cos I've already passed that one eh Rose!) :)

Anik, are you collecting all Czech glass or just selected patterns?

No problem, I am sure your collection will grow with time. Everything comes to those who wait and I am sure Jindrich will be along to make me cry with a picture of his hundreds of waisted vases, no doubt including colours that I didn't even know existed!

The one I bought today was only £1 but it was filthy and I thought it had water staining but luckily all the gunk game off.

 :24:  I'm sure that if Jindrich posted photos of ALL his stunning Czech glass, our jealous tears would cause a flood worldwide! 

Nemmie, a quid for the 1032 Rosice vase is unbelievable -- what a bargain, filthy or not!  Oh, I'm starting to feel my eyes get shiny again  ;).



Anne, a few months ago, I would have said I want to collect all Czech glass.  But now, I see I've developed some preferences and even pass over pieces which are not so much to my liking, even if very cheap. 

I really like Czech pressed glass from the 2nd half of the 20th century -- the glassworks makes no difference to me as long as the piece has an industrial or masculine feel...  those are my favorite!  Anything Czech which is masculine/industrial/heavy... 

I also really like Czech hotworked vases and 'sculptural' vases (like the 50s Beraneks' designs).  Oh, and I think Vizner was/is a genious -- I think all his pieces (at least those I've seen in Jindrich's photos) are facinating!  I also like some Czech cut glass as seen in 'Hi Sklo Lo Sklo' (for example the 'Town' vase by Harcuba, the Oliva vase on page 118, the Pravec vase on 119 and the Svarc pieces on 122 and 123.)  I'm partial to vases.

Though not masculine, I also like Zelezny Brod glassworks vases...  especially the clean lines and simplicity of Klinger's pieces.

What I don't particularly like are Chribka pieces (too colorful and gaudy in my opinion) and any type of 'Niagara' basket-type octopus thing  :spls:.  I also don't really like Mstisov Romana or Rhapsody pieces (again, too much color and 'busy-ness' to them.)  Don't really like any piece which reminds me of Murano.  I'm also not fond of gilded/enamelled glass.  And I don't like dainty pieces.

But then again, maybe within the next few months, my taste will be even more refined/specific than it is at the moment.  I'm kind of like a kid in a candy shop and would take almost anything just because it's Czech.  :) 


I'm sorry for going on and on about my likes and dislikes... 

:kissy:

I like the heavy thick pieces too.  I only paid $ 4 dollars (CAD) for this.  I never even noticed it had a label till I got home, and was happy it did.

I want to Thank all *those* people from years ago --- That Never Washed the labels off Glass Pieces.  TY    :thup:

Anik, I agree, the big plain colour chunkies are superb. Two of the most stunning pieces I've seen and handled were an Adolf Matura head vase http://sklounion.com/SkloUnion/Maturahead72.html which was so much bigger than I'd expected it to be, and the Sotola plate which is on the front cover of Marcus' book http://sklounion.com/sklounion_cover3.jpg. That was huge and thick and heavy, just gorgeous!  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:
