Your taller example looks very fine Michael. I turned this vase down the first time I saw it as I did not know what it was, then I kicked myself when I saw a photo of one and realised. Luckily, the seller still had it for sale a few months later when I ran into them again. 8)

 Emanuel Beranek 5909 -- modernist rocket vase bought on Etsy for a very reasonable amount, fits well with the rest of my Skrdlovice.

Lovely Emanuel Beranek vase, Adam! Wish I had bought the amethyst coloured one I saw at the fleamarket some time ago...

Some new pieces here as well:

- my favourite addition: early Veliskova dish, bubbly glass with aubergine / green stripes (similar style to my E. Beranek snail shaped bowl), 17.5 cm long, 10 cm wide. PN 5037 I think.
- big dark blue Vizner vase with gold aventurine (or mica?), stands a little over 25 cm tall, PN 7622 or 7623 or 7626
- Palecek vase in blue and clear, with worn Beranek label, 29 cm high, PN 7719/28

Great items, gentlemen! All lovely and very different examples of Skrdlovice art glass.

P.S. Michael, according to Jindrich's Vizner DVD, yours is the 7623. (The 7626 is green while the 7622 has got a different internal pattern).

Thanks, Anik! (And I wish you wonderful holidays) :)

The Vizner is a very attractive (and impressivly big) piece, doesn't photograph so well unfortunately.
I was confused by the pattern numbers as similar vases are shown as PN 7626 in the >> 1989 Skrdlovice catalogue and in the >> Beranek glass catalogue (though with white instead of gold).

But the Veliskova dish made me even more happy...

I haven't posted much recently, but thought there might be some interest in a recent Vizner acquisition. It's 22 cm tall, weighs an astounding 5.58 kg, and is from the early 1970's.

Great pieces. Just on this page are enough reasons to collect Skrdlovice! The Langhaugh vase and the Veliskova piece are both rare and significant. The Langhuagh vase is on p. 133 of Ricke and the Veliskova piece is in a volume by Petrova. There is something great about owning pieces that are in short supply and are already featured in notable publications. Very nice things!

Thank you so much for the kind words, Robert!
To find a piece like the Veliskova dish is, to me, really a highlight in collecting Skrdlovice glass.

And interesting to learn about the book by Sylva Petrova -- never heard of that. It seems hard to come by, not a single copy available on Amazon etc.
I have the Ricke book, but he (a little unjustly IMHO) omits designers like Veliskova, Stahlikova or Emanuel Beranek...
