Thank you Anik! :D

Here is what could have been my personal highlight of the year, found last weekend...
Imagine my disappointment when I turned it around and saw an ugly damage to one side.

A wonderful vase designed by Maria Stahlikova in 1959, PN 5934, 30 cm tall with big airbubbles swirling from the base towards the top. And quite an unusual colour, too (teal-blue).

Oooooooooo Michael, that's a fantastic vase!  I've never seen one before -- shame about the damage, but I still think it was a very lucky find.

Some goodness has come my way too... two presents to myself for Christmas.

A red Vizner 6832 vase which now completes my perfect set of 3, and a Jan Exnar 8839 'arrowhead' vase which I think is irresistibly silly (though I know not to everyone's taste).

Oh wow Anik, what a set!
Great colour combination :)

And the Exnar is very nice and chunky; only other one I ever saw was in a Sypka auction catalogue...

Wonderful, Anik. That set looks so utterly fabulous all together, I can even forgive the pink for being pink.

What a strange and funky thing the arrowhead vase is!

I'm afraid it conjures up images of damaged noses to me, from somebody trying to drink out of it... :-[
Delighted to see you've managed to treat yourself a little.  ;D

Thank you Michael, Sue and m.  :)

P.S.  Sue, you gave me a good laugh... who the heck would try drinking out of a vase? Especially a vase with a huge pointy thing sat on the top of it?

Possibly the same sort of person who throws the acacia honey roast parsnips into the burnt-crumb-full hinge of the oven door?

I haven't looked in here for a while, and when I do, I'm riven with envy. I love your Exnar piece, Anik, and, Michael, that's a fabulous find.  I don't think I've seen the piece before. There are some undiscovered gems out there, after all.
