Oooooooooooooooooo, David, that is a remarkable and beautiful piece of art glass! WOW.

P.S. Though I know it's a shame, my lamp bases will remain quasi-vases for the time being.

Oh WOW, that is something! Great piece.

One of the things I like about collecting Skrdlovice -- there are beautiful pieces from all periods to be found, some of them readily available, many rather scarce; but also the one-offs like this stunning vase...

Beautiful piece, David! Do you know at what time approx. it was made? Given the style I'd suspect '80s...

Thanks for the compliments. I'm still trying to track down details such as date. I'll pass the info on if I find out.

And Anik, shouldn't the guiding principle of the lamp vases be,"Use it or lose it?"

Two very different pieces added:

- great Jaroslav Svoboda vase, PN 8606/32
Not a range seen very commonly...

- brown cased in green hotworked 1950s vase, 22.5 cm high; PN not really obvious to me, so any guesses appreciated ;)
As the pattern is not very clearly seen in the pics I will have to describe it: 3 spiralling groves like in the "Andromeda" range, with round indentations inbetween.
Looks a bit like E. Beranek PN 5650, but the height is wrong.
With a lot of wishful thinking it could be PN 5504, Jan Kotik.
But there are some more candidates...

Oooo, I love your Svoboda vase, Michael. We don't see those around, do we? What a wonderful find!
I also like your 50s Skrdlovice piece (good colours) but I can't quite help you with a PN... Have you taken a look through the "Magic of Glass" photos? Maybe you could find a match that way.


Edited to add:  This Kotik piece from the exhibition looks close: Magic of glass 3

Thanks Anik!
The Svoboda is really good I think, and the biggest size...

Robert once said that that piece from the Pardubice exhibition is not by Kotik, one of the very few mistakes there. It is similar to my vase, though...
But it is always nice to stroll through the exhibition pics and pattern books, even if nothing conclusive emerges :)

Oh dear, I either must have not been paying attention, or my brain forgot about that. :-[

But you're right... it is lovely to look through the photos (even more so than the pattern books).

ATM nothing to be found here at the fleamarkets, so I was very happy about getting this lovely vase as a present:

Emanuel Beranek 1950, 15.5 cm high.

Not sure about the PN, but this design was shown at the Pardubice exhibition: >> Link

I like your vase, Michael... its simplicity is appealing.  If it is from 1950, could it be the 50112?

A new piece also accidentally entered my collection: a Hora 8519. It is so ridiculously large (19cm tall, over 20cm wide and 2369g) I found it MUCH too charming to let go.  :-[
