David, truly marvelous vases. In case you ever need a person to dust your collection, keep it company, or simply oooooo and aaaaaaa over it, I'm your man -- er, woman. I'll even do it free of charge. But only because I like you that much.

David, I am glad I motivated you to show your stunning Vizner vases -- no wonder they are your favourite ones! :)

In Vienna all quiet on the Skrdlovice front (apart from the Beranek piece, which is, funnily, as dear to me as any of my Vizners -- but I don't own a Vizner piece which can stand up to those you showed).

Thanks, Anik and Rocco. As far as your offer of dusting, Anik, I did pick up a little dust when I ran my finger along my display case yesterday. Just tell me when your plane gets in and I'll even pick you up at the the airport.

Great pieces from Rocco and Langhaugh and obscurities in the other thread... all perfect examples of different phases of the factory, really nice to see them owned by caring collectors who value them,

My only Skrdlovice find from a short trip to Switzerland:
small (10 cm high) blue and purple vase with 4 circular indentions, has the remnants of the unusual bigger label I have on one of my Jaroslav Beranek vases as well.

A search through all the pattern books from the 1950s didn't turn up anything similar ???

Michael,

Interesting piece. The nearest I can think is a Strobochova from 1964, but that one doesn't have the surface features. The colours look very much like Stahlikova from 1958/59.

Nice piece, Michael!  But I was thinking more along the lines of Veliskova 5517. (Yes, I know I'm wrong.)

5517 looks like a possibility, although it would be difficult to attribute on the pattern book alone as it's a little sketchy. The date is a little bit of a problem given the label.  Thy didn't start using that label until 1957, and I don't know if production or supplies of a 1955 piece would continue until 1957.

Thanks both for your help.
I checked those pattern numbers, but no real match IMHO. 5517 looks like it  has a lot of little "pimpels", while mine has 4 rather evenly distributed circular indentions; neither does the shape seem to fit.
Maybe it is a Strobachova piece gone wrong?

The combination of the design (which looks mid 1950s) and the colourway (which looks early 1960s) is a little strange...
And I had thought when I bought it that a quick trail through the pattern books would reveal the PN immediately ;D

@David: did you see that I found me the "Holy Grail" (well at least to me) of Murano glass, a substantial Flavio Poli piece?

Michael,

No, I hadn't seen your Poli piece. Fabulous!  The kind of piece all Murano collectors dream of collecting.  Congratulations.

I wrote Stahlikova when I should have Veliskova for the colours. I have a couple of pieces from 1958 in those colours, so both the style and the colours are late 50's. Of course, that doesn't mean the piece is late 50's.  I'm waiting with keen anticipation to see if bOBA has any thoughts.
