Can you confirm - vase by Maria Stahlikova?
« on: April 24, 2011, 03:03:36 PM »
Bought this beauty in Switzerland last week (paradise for glass collectors :)).
Height appr. 16cm.

I think it is Skrdlovice by Maria Stahlikova, at least it looks similar to the one pictured here in CGR 1961-11: http://picasaweb.google.com/Jindra8526/Glasrevue196111?authkey=Gv1sRgCMLS4bnjxOKIoQE#5440637758972389218
Mine has two beaks instead of one, and the applied strip of glass is different as well...

It bears a generic "Bohemia Glass - Made in Czechoslovakia" label.

Thanks!
Michael

Hi Michael,
I have the same vase. I am very sure it is Skrdlovice and is very likely the same pattern as shown in the CGR journal, as designed by M. Stahlikova. A slight differences may be explained by hand made production techniques. Please email me, if agreeable, since I have a question I would like to ask you regarding one of your pieces,

Robert, thank you very much for your answer!
I am sure you are right that the difference in shape may be due to the hotworking technique...

Is there a reason why they put a Skrdlovice label on one item, and a Bohemia label on the other?

A small correction. There seems to have been some confusion at the time Emanuel Beranek left and this vase appeared with three numbers, two were slightly different. The differences you noticed in your first post are explained by this, not just hot worked production. The vase 5857  became 5933 (the vase we have) and then later Stahlikova redesigned it slightly and the one you refer to in CGR is 6017 with one peak as you describe it. This is credited to Stahlikova-Veliskova, along with lots of others they designed using a murano style with a creative Czech design twist. They together also designed successfully as a team at Harrachov, using techniques of fibres inserted into the glass, seemingly related technologies to the Harrtil and equally as impressive, perhaps more so.  

I attach a picture of my vase and I have label envy. My label is in slightly worse condition. You can see some differences in hot worked production between our vases though, the shape and quantity of colour is different and the applied piece is slightly different.


The use of a specific factory label or not, I do not know about though. Maybe some sellers preferred one or the other, possible export rules for different countries, I do not know.
