Oh Michael, you've been finding some of the most original Skrdlovice pieces!  Wonderful vase, and so odd that it's uni-colour (and completely uranium).   Thank you so much for sharing.

P.S.  I completely forgot that you already had a 'big lipped' vase!  What a lucky guy!

Thank you, Anik! :D

Here is another very special piece, a beautiful vase designed by Jirina Zertova in 1968, PN 6817, 25 cm high.
Pieces from this range seem really hard to find, so I was thrilled when I spotted it at a Berlin fleamarket...

Thank you, Robert!
Yes, isn't it :)

Surely one of my top five Skrdlovice pieces...

Michael, 

Great find. It would be one of my top five, too.

Hi,

I haven't posted much recently, as I'm finding Skrdlovice a little difficult to locate right now. I'm excited at the prospect to Robert and Jindrich's book coming out in April so perhaps that will stir the pot a little, as well as give us collectors something to pore over and ooh and aah for a while.

However, I did acquire these three pieces recently. The Oliva clear piece is not uncommon and I'm not wild about it. However, I haven't seen the Vizner opalescent piece before. It's from early on in his career at Skrdlovice, and looks a little Murano-like to me. The really unusual piece, I think, is the pulegoso with the metal base. Very Art Deco and early Skrdlovice. The mark on the base is "Hand Made Czechoslovakia" so I'm presuming it's 1945 but after the German surrender.

Three beautiful pieces, David!

I love the opalescent Vizner vase, great shape and even greater colours...
The Oliva piece is very nice, too, but I can see why it isn't the favourite of these three (at least for someone like me who likes his glass colourful ;) )
The only other of those early pulegoso pieces with a metal base I ever saw was in a Sypka auction catalogue, they must be really scarce.

Yes, it is getting harder and harder to find Skrdlovice designs which haven't been in this thread (which means in one of our collections).

As always, a pleasure to look at this thread.  I don't 'see' these pieces over here - my eye isn't tuned to them at all so it's wonderful to be able to scroll through and see such fabulous collections.
I did have a Jelinek vase but it went to a friend this Christmas :) - she loved it as well.
After all this time (and there are many vase on this thread I love), I think I would like to own a pulegoso piece.  I shall now keep my eyes peeled  ;D

Wonderful items, David, and like Michael, I'm most taken with the Vizner (love the color and shape).
The pulegoso piece is an exceptional find.

Like m, I haven't got an early Skrdlovice bubbly piece either but I'm hopeful that one will find it's way into my collection eventually.
