Weird Vase ID = L. Palecek for Skrdlovice
« on: May 16, 2011, 12:17:14 PM »
This vase reminds me of Rikaro glass and also Murano but I have no idea who might have made it or when.  All help gratefully received.

Hi Ross, lovely piece!  I've no idea about the designer or pattern, but it looks very Skrdlovice (Czech) to me.

I agree with Wayne. That combination of green-aqua was very popular at Skrdlovice around the late fifties, and though I can't find the specific pattern (hope someone else can have a go at that), the shape is very reminiscent of the works of people like Emil Beranek or Velishkova.

Astrid is in the right area, this is an unusual very nice Skrdlovice piece by L. Palecek, 1962,

Thank you so much Robert.  :thup:  :hiclp:  ;D   I am afraid I haven't got either books or a series of appropriate websites to look up re Czech glass.  It certainly is an unusual vase - only the second I can remember seeing.
