Maria Stahlikova cut and engraved dish 1958
« on: March 04, 2011, 03:55:44 PM »
Another nice find: cut and engraved glass dish, blue and green, by Maria Stahlikova.
This particular design won her a Grand Prix at the Brussels Expo 1958!

I have to show this because
a) it is really beautiful, and I guess more on the rare side
b) I am proud of having identified it myself :)

It is shown in CGR 1961/11: http://picasaweb.google.com/Jindra8526/Glasrevue196111?authkey=Gv1sRgCMLS4bnjxOKIoQE#5440634409915139218

In the text they say that she used blanks from Skrdlovice and Karlovarske sklo for her cut designs.
I guess that the blank for this one comes from Skrdlovice? -- The colour combination seems familiar...

The answer is easy. When absolutely clean and pure glass without any even small bubbles than Karlovarske sklo.

What about to start collect Murano Michael. You really hurt us with growing of your collection :chky:

Thanks, Jindrich!
Collecting Czech glass is so much more fun :)

Glass of the Stahlikova bowl is not very clean and pure -- so Skrdlovice...

A beautiful, beautiful bowl, Michael!  Well done...  someone in Poland is just-a-bit-more-than-slightly-jealous.

Thanks, Anik and Dirk!
To me the best thing regarding this nice piece of glass is the historical aspect -- I love the fact that it won an Expo 58 Grand Prix :)

That's a beauty, Michael. Please tell me you found it in an obscure  little shop in a backstreet of an tiny little town I will never visit. I really like Stahlikova's pieces but they're so hard to find.

Congrats!

David


PS How about a trade: the two glass thistles, AND the tartan box, AND a bottle of organic maple syrup? But wait, there's more....

Because the thistle glasses are mine (with the swank boxes)!  :sc: And you don't need to send the maple syrup, I just picked up a jar of same whilst buying groceries.  :smg:

Wow, this is a great piece. I have not seen it before and your attribution is likely perfect too. This kind of piece is pretty unusual and (in my opinion) is one of the "best" pieces of Skrdlovice I have seen yet on GMB. A scarce and special thing. Cut glass from this period of Skrdlovice is extremely unusual to find. Well done on the find and "wow" again!
