Wow, I am glad that the board is back  :)

I found this beautiful vase last week, and I would think it was made at Cesky Crystal -- Chlum u Trebone.
Colours are identical to pieces from Jan Gabrhel and Pavel Hlava from the seventies, but I couldn't find the shape anywhere...
 
30 cm high, polished and bevelled rim, heat sensitive glass I guess.

Still not found a match for my vase ???

I was thinking of this Hlava piece and the one in Mark Hill's book which have identical colours, or the Jan Gabrhel vases in similar colourways and with rings here and here...

edit: or am I completely off the track and the colours and style were used by other makers (and in other countries) as well?

Any input very much appreciated!
Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael... I do see how you feel this piece is Czech.  I've searched a little myself, but haven't come up with anything useful or helpful.  (But at least you know you aren't being ignored.)

Thanks a lot for looking into this, Anik!

I don't have much doubt that the vase is Czech and from Cesky Kristal -- Chlum u Trebone...
Still a designer name or reference would be great :)

I will have to browse all CGR issues from the 1980s and 90s I guess and see if I can find something.
Pity that Jindrich isn't around much any more -- he might know at once...

I didn't see your piece in the CGR.  Perhaps you could try contacting Jindrich through his website?  :)

Thanks Anik!
I could write to Jindrich, but I always hesitate to bother people via e-mail...
I noticed he was around, so he obviously doesn't have time to contribute.

He has given us incredible resources to do our own research, anyway.

Meanwhile I am quite contented with my Chlum attribution :)
