Sklo Union head vase? - ID = Adolf Matura for Sklo Union
« on: October 16, 2011, 05:46:43 PM »
Managed to pick up what I think is a Sklo Union 'Face' vase, but I don't have access to my books right now. I seem to remember they came in all-clear glass, and frosted with clear highlights - this one appears to be the latter. Can anyone confirm, please? Also who was the designer - was it Matura or Jurnickl?

Thanks Anik - my memory was a little hazy on this, but I bought it on instinct. Looks like I've joined the 'Face' vase club!  ;D

Called a head vase rather than face vase though I think David? But still a fab find! I was amazed how heavy these are when I picked one up. I prefer the clear to the frosted effect, but they are both seriously  :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: making though! Congrats!  :rah:

Yup, in Haarlem. Surprising what I've found over here - even some very rare pieces of Chance!

Can the title of this thread be amended to 'Head' then please? I was thinking of Dartington's 'Ugly' vase, which I think is referred to as a 'Face vase' sometimes?

A great buy David. These are still fairly scarce in my experience and are certainly iconic. I wish I had one.... (GMB member Jindra has a rare head plate in this pattern too I think.... somewhere in his collection!) This vase is a classic find, amongst all the CZ post war pressed glass, I think these (and a few other major designs) will retain their interest for collectors indefinitely, above most other pieces out there,

I would dearly love to see the head plate as well, if Jindrich looks in.
