Vase with green applications ... ID = Lednicke Rovne
« on: February 26, 2011, 01:16:21 PM »
Vase made of clear glass with green applications, height 21 cm.
Looks Czech to me, reminds of Zemek / Klinger pieces, but I wasn't able to find it anywhere (neither in the more recent Chribska catalogues).

Thanks!
Michael

I have one of these in pink blue with a label. I will post a pic in due course. It was a thread on here some time ago I think...

LR Crystal a.s. Lednicke Rovne, a really nice piece. Designer unknown, theough a guy called Taraba was important for them in the 1960's-70's. This vase looks and feels from the same period in my opinion.

This factory today is in Slovakia, so maybe it is correct to say Slovakian glass rather than CZ!

Thank you so much, Robert!  :hiclp:
So we should call this Czech(oslovakian) then :)

Found the thread with your beautiful version of this vase: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,29503.0.html

Saw a labeled LR vase a few months ago on the fleamarket, which I liked very much (in the style of this one - http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,7927.0.html) but unfortunately didn't buy it because it was too expensive.
I see lots of stemware here marked LR, but the hotworked pieces seem quite rare...

Thanks, Anik!
I think it is nice, too; the beaked rim makes it a good companion for my Klinger pieces :)

If I come across another interesting Lednicke Rovne item I will post a pic!

Lednicke Rovne still exists as Rona Crystal producing table glassware. http://www.rona.sk/
I have found only one old catalogue from this factory for the meanwhile, but few words in English and German about factory history are there:

They surely produced also "hutni sklo" mostly in green but more I do not know.

Jindrich, thank you very much for posting the Lednicke Rovne catalogue!
I have seen 2 "hutni sklo" LR items during the last months in dark smokey-green glass, very nice modern 50ies/60ies shapes.

So this company was never part of the "Czechoslovakian" glass industry? Nothing in the CGR issues?

Naturaly LN was integral part of Czechoslovakian glass industry, all products were exported vias Glassexport. I assume Czech and Slovak glass in Czechoslovakia as the same, we were one state, many Slovak artist worked in Czech part of country and vice versa.
I am still very Czechoslovakian man. I feel Slovakia as part of m country. I
have spent one year in Czecholovakian army together with Slovak friends, we were realy one state. Languages so simmilar like your Wien dialect with language of Germans from Sachsen.

Well it is over. I will be forever Czechoslovakian, not my kids.
Same had happened to our grandfathers. All of them were Austrians without any problem.

Found another one of these, in a very nice colourway (purplish-blue with pink applications -- just the opposite colours of Robert's vase :))

Thanks for looking!

And for reference: another Lednicke Rovne vase (stickered with the older circular LR label like this one), 21 cm high, in apricot :)

If it didn't have the label I would have thought this is a ZBS vase in a very unusual colour...
