Skrdlovice bowl with label... lucky me... which pattern please?
« on: February 20, 2011, 09:33:55 AM »
I'm feeling very happy...  this morning, I picked up my 40th piece of Czech glass for my collection -- an attractive Skrdlovice bowl with a partial label. ;D  

It is 10cm high and 21cm wide.  Though I've taken a look at other Skrdlovice bowls, I'm having some trouble matching the design with anything I see.  (I thought it was Bohuslav Beranek, 5352, but now I think I'm mistaken.)  I would greatly appreciate some help.

Thank you!


P.S.  This morning, I also picked up Czech glass piece number 38 and 39 (a pink ZBS Miloslav Janku fish with label, and a pink ZBS 'earred' vase with label).  I was terribly excited with my finds until I came home and had to contend with my what-are-we-going-to-do-with-all-this-glass-junk-you-keep-bringing-home?! husband.  
:thud:   Some people know how to bust up a girl's fun and excitement.

Hi Anik, nice buy!

These kind of bowls can be tricky to attribute. The Beraneks made many similar patterns to each other. Reading a copy of a circa 1954 Skrdlovice catalogue, I noticed there is a bowl looking like this is in it. So it looks to me most like an Emanuel Beranek bowl, PN 5154/2, the photo match is good and the dimensions (as importantly are within 2cm). The /2 denotes an alternative size...

I have never seen the label before and it must have been a very short-lived factory label. A really nice piece!

Thank you, Robert!  So I was mistaken once again.  I really don't know how you manage to do it...  I look at a piece, find some images which 'could' be the piece I have, then my brain and eyes go all stupid -- nothing looks the same one minute, then everything looks the same the next. 
:ho:   

I do wish I had at least a quarter of your talent. 

At least it's a good bowl, in lovely condition, and with a rather scarce label...  I think I've done pretty good for myself today. ;D

A small edition to my initial post:  I wrote 'Bohuslav Beranek', but I meant to write Jan Broz, who was the designer of the 5352 jardiniere.

Just to clarify, perhaps (?). A few similar designs of this bowl were designed at Skrdlovice at this time. After some discussions, it is thought that this bowl most closely resembles a bowl that is featured in a 1954 catalogue, one designed by Bohuslav Beranek, PN 5070.

Also I have to say, this new Bohemian-Czech glass department at GMB is rather good, well done mods etc...

Thank you, Robert  :kissy:.

And I also like the new Czech & Bohemia glass sub-forum found on the main page. :)

Of course it has, Anne...  I was just checking if you were paying attention. ;)

(I obviously wasn't using all my brain cells whilst typing -- I know Czech glass has got its own forum now, hence the/my excitement...  why I wrote 'sub-', I haven't a clue.  :-\ :))
