Great plate Michael. I have a similar plate we casually refer to as a "fried egg" plate. Crazy inscription (I do have a Palecek inscribed Leerdam!!) This looks to me like a former owner name, but either way it seems not relevant today! These plates are huge. It is possible to display them on the clear plastic tripod stands. This works quite well for me, though the plastic seems under quite a bit of strain, even with the 12 inch size of stand....

Thank you, Robert!
I saw in the pattern books that these plates came in several different designs, each with a different pattern number.
When I described it to my friend I claimed that it looked like a plate with two fried eggs ;D
I will try to get one of those acrylic stands, it would be a pity to store it away...

Delivered this week. Skrdlovice vase. I think it's an Emanuel Beranek piece. Anyone able to confirm? 8.25 inches high with label.

Lovely vase, Adam!  It was designed by Jan Juda in 1985 (pattern number 8533).

Michael, I've got some room to display your Svoboda plate, so feel free to send it over.  I'm in such a giving mood, I won't even charge you rent for the space it'll take up.  :P

Good idea, Anik! That would leave some space on my sideboard to display your Vizner egg vase ;D

Nothing to add except to say I love watching this thread.  I rarely see pieces like these over here -  love the fried egg plate and the bubbly vase with the different coloured rim.

Thanks for the kind words, m -- and for watching our thread :)

I would think that the "fried eggs" plate is rather scarce in comparison to many other pieces (I brought it back from my Hamburg holiday).
The big plates seem harder to find than vases and bowls -- at least this one was the first I ever saw...

Just like Michael's, but with a topaz top, this is my Svoboda 7421...  (Wonderful piece!)

Love it, Anik!
It's all bubbly and delicate, then the topaz contrasts by being thick and substantial - but then the two gel together so well - it reminds me of some deep sea creature, opening up in the moving waters...
