Skrdlovice - Identified Items
« on: May 01, 2011, 03:38:30 PM »
My Skrdlovice collection is growing nicely :)
Very different styles, but I think they are both great designs...

1. rose/green coloured, organic shaped vase, 23 cm high; I think designed by Emanuel Beranek 1959/60?

2. huge (28cm high and VERY heavy) vase by Jaroslav Svoboda, PN 6975/28

Thanks for looking!
Michael

I especially like the first piece...  very nice Michael.  How many items do you now have in your growing Skrdlovice collection?  (Just whisper the answer -- no need to make the whole world jealous.  :))

Thanks, Anik!
My Skrdlovice collection is 12 items, but that is only a minor part of my Czech glass collection :wsh:

Michael,

It is Emanuel Beranek 1959, PN 59124. A lovely piece. The Jaroslav Svoboda vase is also very nice, I think in the largest size too. A significant series of vases for him during his time at Skrdlovice, as you probably know, he used frequently used cobalt blue to dramatic effect and still does today at his Svoboda Karlov glassworks. I hope you find some more Skrdlovice on your travels!

Thank you, Robert and Jindrich!

The Svoboda vase is actually much more impressive in reality -- due to its sheer size and the marvellous technique of the floating blue disks in the thick glass :)

And I love the whole Beranek 1959 range the first vase is from.
Anik, I just realized you have the short brother of this vase! (in the classic blue and green Skrdlovice colours)

Jindrich, 300 pieces :o

My Skrdlovice collection is a little sad compared to other people's...  I've got a total of 7 pieces (6 designed in the 50s, 1 from the 70s).  I've also got a little 8,5cm green ball vase which is very 50s Skrdlovice style, but no match for it in the catalogues:

That hasn't stopped me from labeling it as Skrdlovice though...  a girl can always dream and hope.

My collection will grow by 1 next week...  I'm expecting the arrival of a lovely Emanuel Beranek basket/vase designed in 1959 -- in the lovely colours of blue and green.  ;D

Think positive Anik, as soon as you will purchase 1 piece more your collection will grow about 12 percent. For the same growing I need to purchase 40 pieces :-)

Jindrich:  I've got every confidence you'll have those 40 pieces by the end of the month. In other words, I'm very jealous. Two very nice additions, Michael. A classy collection you have there.
