Robert:  Thanks, I was surprised and pleased at the attribution. Not to disparage modern Chribska (at least in public), but this is a much better quality piece in every way.  It was one of those pieces that whisper insistently, "You may not know who or what I am but buy me now and I'll enrich your life."

Anik:  Well spotted. I had looked over that page within the last couple of months and it didn't jump out at me. THey're not the same. However, there are enough similarities between the pieces in there and my vase to make me think that it's quite likely they were the forerunners of the my current piece and of the candlestick in the other thread.  They would also suggest that Oldřich Lipa was the designer of both. I'm happy with that.

Many thanks, o-sharp-eyed one.

David


PS  Have a look at my new listing to Picasa later today. A nice Beranek bowl, but in a colour you won't like, and a wonderful 'Albatros' vase by Metelak for Harrachov. Perhaps you won't like it, but, my, is it impressive.

David, I very much like your new Beranek bowl! That pinkish-brownish-salmony colour looks just fine in hotworked pieces  (not so fine in pressed pieces).  I don't like the 'albatros' vase, though... just too much going on with it.

Anik:

I can see why you might not like the 'Albatros' in terms of aesthetics. However, the technique is very impressive.  The Beranek is fine in every way. Both found in Canada, btw.

Hi to all the good people here on this thread.
Although this thread is 3 years old, I feel i must add my two cents of thanks to you all, as this thread helped me to identify my recent purchase of a vase of this range. The funny thing is that while reading all the thread, I got such a strong feeling of 'this is about me, isn't it?'. All the range of questions and assumptions I made about my vase seemed to be described in here. Just as you, David, I bought with the 'I don't know what it is, but I know it is good' feeling. Just as you, I also suspected Karlovarske Sklo, and just like you, I was disappointed when reading the other thread in which it was identified it as modern Chribska. Just as you, I was delighted to know it is a karlovarske Sklo/Moser production, and to have the verification that my first hunch was correct.
Usually I am a silent reader in this forum, but I really think that this time I must step in and thank you all - David, Robert, Jhon and Anik, as well as glassobsessed.
Best Regards,
Assaf

Welcome, Assaf. 

Thanks for your kind words and you've found a very nice piece. Coincidently, today I saw a piece from this range with a Karlovarske Sklo label on it. That's a first for me.
