Kevin, a very nice piece!
I have seen this model here at the flea market once, but the peak was chipped so I didn't buy it...
On the 20thcenturyglass website is a version in blue/green (you have to scroll down a little): http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/bohemian_glass/skrdloviceglass_home.htm

Unfortunately I cannot make out the name in the patternbook either...

I added an interesting piece to my collection today, a tall candle holder by Petr Hora, PN 8804/28 (has a red Skrdlovice label)

Fabulous Petr Hora candlestick! Really elegant! Love the top!

Many thanks Rocco for that reference.
There they have documentation which is one of Jindrich's pages:
Czechoslovak Glass Review 1955 11

I had not seen this page before!

many thanks again.

Thanks for the nice comment, Kev.

My newest addition (Anik will like it :) ): Jindrich Beranek vase, dark blue cased in green.
And I saw that Anik has added several beautiful pieces to her Skrldovice collection...

Thank you, Michael.  I found my Spinar vase at the market a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, it's got a rather large bruise near the bottom. :(  But it is an attractive vase nonetheless.

Do you think your Jindrich Beranek vase was made at Skrdlovice?  Or is it possible that it's one of his Austrian productions?  I've have never seen one in such a light colourway.

His Austrian pieces are (almost) always signed, and have a circular pontil mark.
So definately Skrdlovice.

It is a really deep inky blue (simlar to my Stahlikova ashtray) -- I think the pic is a little misleading.
It's a great colourway...

I could have bought the shorter version of this design as well in clear and brown, but it was a little too expensive.

And one less on the wish list, about 99 to go ::)

Shape is a little bit wonky, but I like it.

Oh my, Michael, what happened to it?  It looks, errrr, 'original'...  has it got a 'II' on the base? 

I don't think wish lists ever get smaller... no matter how many items come our way.
It's a darn good thing we've got a whole lifetime.  ;)

No II :)

I have seen several pieces of this design, and I would say all of them are a little bit "orignial" -- but that's what I love about them....
David's version has an even more pulled lobe (and lovelier colours).
The one in Düsseldorf e-museum is quite similar to mine.

Yes, the wishlist is too long...
