Anik, a really impressive piece. But I have to confess it would enter my collection only by accident as well  ;) (But if I stumbled over one I would surely buy it)

I think the PN you suggested for my small vase is the only one which makes sense in the 1950 pattern book, though the drawing does look quite different...

Having complained yesterday that there is nothing at the local fleamarkets to be found at the moment, today's Naschmarkt visit proved otherwise:

- bold and beautiful Stahlikova vase in the blue and purple colourway. 22.5 cm high, 14 cm wide. One of the best I have seen from this design (while my >> other one is one of the worst and wonkiest ;D )
I won't even deal with PN, they all look too similar...

- Emanuel Beranek PN 5911, 15 cm high; a little bit unusual as the whole piece is in the (uranium) green and blue colourway, with the pouches in 4 additional colours. Others I have seen so far had a colourless base glass.

Ooooo Michael, you've had an exciting day!  It just goes to show that maybe you should complain a little bit more.  ;D

Though I'm not very fond of this Stahlikova design, your vase is the most beautiful and well-proportioned one I've ever seen. It really is something special!  The small vase is very odd -- I've never seen one with so many colours. I wonder what the glassblower was thinking?

So glad your luck at the market picked up. Yay!  (I haven't found anything exciting at my Sunday market in such a long while... maybe some of your good fortune will rub off on me when I go tomorrow. :) )

Well, as spring is here now, I hope that a lot of nice glass wil come your way tomorrow ;)
The Stahlikova is much better in real life...

Good buys, Michael. I agree with you about the variability of the Stahlikova design,  and that your new one is the best you've seen. I know mine is wonky although my blue and pink is very nice.

Anik, I really like the Hora piece, one of my favourite designs of his.

I was at an antique show in Vancouver today and a surprising amount of Skrdlovice, although nothing very rare. Tomorrow I'll post a couple of  Vizners I've bought recently.

Oh Anik sorry, it was me who wasn't clear...
I wasn't refering to your statement, rather saying that it looked even better in real life -- the third dimension (the thin pulled lobe opposite the massive "body") is missing in my pics.

David, curious to see your new Vizners!

Two of my new Vizners. Both look like typical Vizners, monumental, elegant, and simple.

David, two more great Vizners I have not seen before...
The first is more beautiful, while the second is more interesting :)

I really have to think of something other than WOW to say... David, both pieces are wonderfully magnificent!

Here is my newest 'fancy' piece of Skrdlovice art glass... A beautiful clear (with a slight azur tinge) Vizner 6828 which is 18,5cm tall, 13cm wide and weighs 3,4kg.  Yay me!
