Jindrich:

Is the VUUS label on the other piece incorrect, or is VUUS the same as Chribska, or did Chribska take over VUUS designs, or is the piece I pointed out not the same as Roco's? I'm not disagreeing with you, just trying to understand.

Thank you all very much for this interesting discussion!
So this seems to be Chribska, recent production.

David, your investigation on the labeled piece is also very interesting, perhaps VUUS developed a sort of "role model" for this kind of design?

Anne, your version of this vase is very nice!

Well, although he does have a fabulous collection, he's not always right in his attributions.
Astrid, you may be right here, he attributes Riedel to Germany :)

I've got doubts that these vases are recent production... I've also got one, about 16cm high, which has got very significant wear to the base.  Also, the colours are not necessarily 'modern'. 

I would suggest we still keep this topic opened.  :usd:

VUUS is not something I know a lot about either David. It certainly looks possible that this where the design originated. I do know that Chribska may have produced many designs that originated elsewhere so both could be true perhaps, VUUS and then also later Chribska production as guaranteed by Jindra. The idea seems interesting to me, given the near identical designs from VUUS and Chribska.

It is an interesting idea.

My version too has lots of age related wear on the base which led me to believe it was almost as old as me ;) but not quite.

Hi all:
I know it's quite a long time from the last post to this topic but I also would like to find out something more about the designer of the small heavy vase. One of mines has a VUUS label on it .  I am attaching photo of it for a reference. Also, I came across another similar small vase with VUUS label on the internet so I am posting images of it too. Unfortunately these images are not mine and I do not know who made them to ask for permission to public them here. If it is against the rules of this forum,  could you please remove them? Thank you.
Interesting similarity of colour swirl can be seen on Jiri Suhajek's vases published in his 1989 catalogue on Jindra's cs/sklo pages (pic. no 20):

Could this possibly lead to Jiri Suhajek as a possible designer of the vase? Thank you.

Interesting, Torysa!  I wonder what VUUS was?  The label certainly doesn't look very modern. 
There is still so much to discover and learn about Czech glass.

Thanks Anik for answer. VUUS stands for 'Výzkumní ústav užitkového skla' as David mentioned earlier in this topic: "...It even has a label, VUUS, which Langhamer, p. 282, has as VĂ˝zkumnĂ˝  Ăšstav UĹľitkovĂ©ho 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.... "

That much I know (I did read what David wrote on the previous page  8) ).  But it seems our knowledge, or at least my knowledge, of VUUS is very limited.  Who were the designers?  How many designs came from there?  Did they cooperate/collaborate with other glassworks?  And why is a research institute producing (what appears to be) a large number of one design? 

Ah, so many questions.
