Pair of glass candle holders..Alpine? - ID = Rosice 485/80
« on: September 16, 2006, 07:20:07 AM »
Hi All,

Wonder if anyone can identify these candle holders. They have no markings on them except for the sticker Alpine. They are very heavy, measuring 8cm in height, 6cm across.  Gorgeous aqua colour, better than the pics.

Hi,
Definitely Sklo Union. Jan Schmid, for zavod Rosice or Libochovice.
Neither Zejmon nor Jurnikl. Late 1960's.
Alpine is an importer's label.
Regards,
Le Casson

Thank you both for your help. Is there anywhere on the net you can recommend that I can look at some examples?

Thanks, Frank.
Selina, enjoy your pressed candle-holders, wonderful items, and pretty under-rated at the moment.
Regards,
Marcus

Just a bit of tidying up...  :)

The candleholders are Rosice 485/80, designed by Jiri Brabec in 1968.
See this link for photographs of Jiri Brabec's designs (kindly provided by Jindrich), as well as, the Brabec Sklo Union catalogue here .
