David, lovely to hear from you.
And don't worry -- I am always going green with envy when I browse through your Skrdlovice gallery ;)

The Stahlikova seems rather scarce (I hadn't seen it before either, apart from the Pardubice exhibition pics).

Here is another piece not commonly seen I think, and quite fabulous too IMHO:
Jaroslav Svoboda, PN 7301/21
Highly sculptural, and totally useless as a vase (with just a small well at the top) -- maybe that is why it wasn't as successful as his other "drip-decoration" range from the same year...

Michael,

Congratulations! Another wonderful piece I've never seen before.

I have managed to find some pieces to enrich my Christmas: three Vizners, whose work I'm focusing on right now, and a Rudolf Beranek, which is very Murano-like.

David, wish you a wonderful new year 2014!
Seems to start off nicely with these 4 great pieces.
I love the all blue Vizner vase with the spiky top. The Rudolf Beranek is beautiful, not a piece I would have looked out for, but what an attractive colourway...

I wouldn't mind focusing on Mr. Vizner's work, but I don't find much locally, and usually get outbid online, so I have to focus on other Skrdlovice oddities and rarities ;D

4 more :D

- Jelinek heart shaped vase, PN 6525, a bit odd proportions (18 cm high), still I am extremely happy
- Vizner egg vase in yellow, 16.5 cm high and massive. PN 6832. At last...
- Veliskova "Kangaroo" vase, PN 5555, 27 cm high, in one of my favourite 1950s colourways
- small Palecek vase, from a range called "Colibri", PN 6522, 9 cm high. The first I have seen outside the pattern books.

Michael,

Great additions, each very special in its own way.  I've long lusted for the Jelinek vase without ever being able to get one.  At least I can look at photos of yours now.

Great pieces Michael. Does the Jelinek weigh the same as the normal pattern examples 2.8-3 KG?
The Veliskova vase is still underrated in my opinion, the design feels and looks great when it is in front of you. This one in pink displays really well with other pieces in the same colourway.

Thanks David and Robert!
The Jelinek vase is very heavy, I would think around 3 kg (it's exceeding the 2 kg my kitchen scale can display).
And it was not a bargain ;)

I love the Veliskova vase, too, unfortunately it doesn't photograph as nicely as it looks in reality...

Great additions to your collection, Michael!  All of them are wonderful, but I'm most taken with the Jelinek and its odd shape and beautiful colour, and (of course) the super-fabulous Vizner egg!

Found today: another Maresova Smolkova "big lips" vase, PN 5514. See >> here for my first one.

Highly unusual all-Uranium colourway (never saw this before in any Skrdlovice piece), and the pattern is mirrored.
