czech glass Identification
« on: March 10, 2011, 02:32:26 PM »
any help with ID of maker or designer welcome

The Royal Bohemian weight has a label and changes colour in different  light

The small bowl has four colours

The crystalex vase is large and is red to the base and amber to top

Hi, it's normally best to post a separate thread for each item so they don't get confused.  Anyway, 1st item is by Mstisov, from the 'Rhapsody' range by Frantisek Zemek.  Not too sure about the others.

The egg shaped paperweight looks like it may be I think (open to correction here) a weight based on a design by Vladimir Jelinek.  It's also neodymium I think, which is why it changes colour.

Yes the egg paperweight is neodimium

I have other czech pieces as such and a few Caithness the same I may post later - they are early

The first bowl looks like a variant of 'Rhapsody' line by Zemek, perhaps made after Mstisov production was moved to Karlovarske Sklo (Moser) as the colours are a little bright. Here's a a couple of pieces from the same line. I think the last one I show might be from Karlovarske Sklo, although, as ever, I'd defer to Jindrich's opinion.

The original version of this piece is Czech Glass review as 'Rhapsody' and 'bez nazvu,' without a name, that is no production number.

And, putting on my grumpy old pedant head  :-[  , could I add that there is absolutely nothing called "Royal Bohemia".

It's a made-up term which was used in error, one which unfortunatley got into print, and occassionally surfaces - as it just did here!

Too true and sorry - thre is no royal bohemia the label on my pieces is just bohemia made in czechoslovakia

So the egg weight and the firts piece but any clues on the crystalex vase it is very beautiful and subtle
