Small heavy clear glass vase with colour swirl for ID = Chribska
« on: December 09, 2010, 10:56:18 PM »
My guess would be Czech, as there is a very similar one (different colour) in Dusan's beautiful web gallery, unfortunately without further description...

Height 14cm, very heavy.

Thanks!

I also think it's Czech, possibly Chribska, nineties or later, though I leave it gladly to the expert to confirm. I have something with a similar pattern, so I'm interested if more is known. The etchmark on the base I interpreted so far as meaning it's a seconds.

Thanks, Astrid!
Your ashtray really seems to be a relative of my vase...

I also think it is not very old as it has little wear to the bottom.

Hi Astrid,
I just found this small blue-green vase on the fabulous website of the Dutch glass collector you posted in the other thread: http://www.artglassleiden.nl/archives/10105
Has a marbled inclusion on one side like in our pieces.
He attributes this small vase to Moser, probably Suhajek, very interesting...

Well, although he does have a fabulous collection, he's not always right in his attributions. Moser usually signs their pieces on the base. Personally, I don't believe it's Moser. If it isn't modern Czech, my hunch would be Polish. I do wish I could remember where I've seen the pattern before...

Hi:

The shape seems like a squatter version of the Skrdlovice vase by E. Beranek. I'm pretty sure that he wouldn't have used such colours. I agree with Astrid in her reservations about the Moser attribution, which was very tentative anyhow. It's in the dusan gallery for his question mark pieces, and has been there for a while. Once id'd, dusan leaves them there, as you can see by the attributions that have been added. That would lead me to assume that it's not pre-1993 Skrdlovice. 

I think Astrid's hunch is correct.:  Polish if not Chribska. Pre-1993 Chrinbska did do a similar vase with a stain of colour in it, but without the little Skrdlvovice ears on top.

I think this etched mark on the bottom, like a II in a circle has been identified on a previous thread ages ago as a factory mark linked to being some kind of factory production mark at Chribska, seen on the bottom of a fairly typical 1970's-1980's vase I think .... As soon as I saw these pieces I thought fairly modern Chribska but maybe Jindrich can add more information... They are lovely looking, carelfully designed pieces.

Thanks Anne, for finding the earlier thread. Recent Chribska it is, then.

I think that this is the same piece with a different colour swirl. http://picasaweb.google.com/exat212/32#5212196239342996738

It even has a label, VUUS, which Langhamer, p. 282, has as Výzkumný  Ústav Užitkového Skla, Novy Bor. Ricke, p.423, states that the name translates as "Utitility Glass Research Institute." He writes it researched, "among other things, the shaping of of hollow forms with a wood stick, the decoration of decoration of objects with regularly and irregularly twisted glass threads, the application of flat and relief surface blobs." So the piece here is is consistent with what VUUS produced. Research stopped in the early 70's and the glassworks closed in 1976.

So it seems possible that this is an older, and perhaps more significant, piece than we first thought. Of course, the label could there by mistake as well.

Jindrich, is this a possible attribution or should we stick with the Chribska?
