Pressed glass vase, amethyst colour: Sklo Union?
« on: February 20, 2011, 03:58:25 PM »
Bought this nice pressed glass vase today, colour is light amethyst (doesn't show really well in the pics).
Polished base, height 17cm.

It looked very Sklo Union-ish to me, and it cost only 2 Euro, so here it is :)
Couldn't find it in any of my reference websites...

Because pf the colour and the base I would look into Ankerglas Bernsdorf direction, also VLG, but cannot find an exact match at the moment  :wsh:
Nice anyway!

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thank you very much, Pamela!

I am so obsessed with Czech glass at the moment that I rarely think of other possibilities :)
I will look into the VLG and Ankerglas options!

Very old thread, but I still don't know more about this vase.

What I can add is that I see this design regularly here (Vienna, Austria) at the fleamarkets and carboot sales, as far as I remember in yellow, pink and light blue, too.

Could they be Austrian? Is there a maker of coloured pressed glass known who could be responsible for these?

Another update:
I have seen this vase in many colours during the past few years, pink, yellow, blue, amethyst, amber and clear.
But recently I came across one of them in marbled slag glass, which instantly reminded my of those bowls with two pidgeons which are frequently found here in Austria, see PK:
http://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/aktuelles/pdf/pk-2012-4w-vorgic-hrastnik-schale-taube.pdf
and were made in Yugoslavia by STS Abel and later Steklarna Hrastnik.

So probably Yugoslavian?
