Blue ashtray / bowl - star shaped base
« on: September 07, 2011, 12:37:14 PM »
Hello and apologies for being cheeky with this and my next two posts. I'm braving the world of antiques and collectors fairs starting this Saturday and just wanted some last minute help with a few pieces that I haven't been able to identify.

I love this piece (this could be the fatal flaw in my plan as I'm very attached to alot of the pieces I've collected / acquired) and wonder if it's Murano but I haven't been able to find anything similar. It's height is 8cm and the diameter is 11cm. It has these half moon shaped clear glass trails on the side and the base makes a star shape. Any thoughts as to it's maker or era would be very gratefully received.

Thanks in anticipation

Helen

I'm sure I've seen this somewhere before, looks Czech to me, maybe Chribska?

Chribska... still available in the 1999 catalogue I think. (see Jindrich's site to view the catalogue: http://www.cs-sklo.cz/)  :)

Thank you, thank you both of you. Just found that page as well Wayne. So possibly not as old as I thought (it's a very steep learning curve!) but I know where it was made now. Really grateful for your help. Hopefully one day as my knowledge grows, I may be able to return the favour. Kind regards, Helen
