Two additions to my small Suhajek collection, both designed for Moser / Karlovarske Sklo.
- massive vase with "abstract flower" decor, 18 cm tall, from around 1975. One of my favourite Suhajek designs, so glad I finally found one I could afford
Different to others I have seen from this range as the shape isn't flat but round, and the base colour is blue instead of colourless.
CGR shows several examples from this range with different pattern numbers...
- big cylinder vase with red and blue threading decor, diameter 15 cm, just short of 20 cm tall. A range not commonly seen I think.
Similar pieces shown in CGR 1974/4 as an outcome of the "hot glass symposia 1973" held at Skrdlovice and Karlovy Vary >> Link
And featured again in >> CGR 1976/13
I wonder if the applied "I" and "S" decor on my vase are just accidental, or the initials of Jiri Suhajek?
And unusual for Moser, it has an oval polished pontil mark to the base.
Thanks for looking,
