Very 1970's Anik, it looks like a really great example of the period, the colourway would seem too dark for the 1980's wouldn't it, but suits the seventies perfectly.

Another Vladimir Jelinek heart vase :D, quite big at a height of 19.5 cm and width of 21.5 cm.
Clear glass with purplish-black blobs...

Thanks,
Michael

Michael, you must have been quite pleased with your find. :)   Do you display your heart vases together?

My collection has grown a little too.  I've got a Vizner 6943 which is so much more attactive than my photo shows -- it sparkles like a diamond.  I've also got a Vizner 'pineapple' (pattern 7117) in topaz and clear, and a beautiful amethyst propeller vase (Jan Kotik, pattern 5503) which my parents found for me in Canada.

Very nice, Anik!
I love the colours in your propeller vase -- what a well chosen present from your parents :)

Vizner's pineapple vases are always great, and the 6943 looks interesting (though I do like a little more colour).

My Jelinek heart vases sit next to each other (among 20 other favourite glass pieces), so I wouldn't call it "display" ;D

This must be one of the most unusual pieces of 1950s Skrdlovice.
Not the shape, which I think is a Zemek design, PN 5530 (a little slimmer than my other one). It stands 13 cm tall.

But it has an intriguing semi-opaque, slightly lustrous finish. It looks almost like there was a layer of opalescent glass around it, but I guess it is just a thick coating of something like silverchloride (one of our lovely glass-chemistry knowledgeable co-members can explain it, I am sure).

The only other pieces with this finish I ever saw are these two beautiful signed Emanuel Beranek vases auctioned in 2008 (>> Link 1, >> Link 2).

It has the bigger silver/yellow label I have on two other late 1950s pieces.

Maybe Robert can add some more info :)

Thanks,
MIchael

Fascinating, Michael... It looks like there is smoke trapped within the glass.  Not a common effect for Skrdlovice, is it?

Wonderful piece.

Thanks, Anik.
Quite original, isn't it ;)

The reflexions inside the glass are really nice...
I wasn't able to capture the pastel iridescence in my pics, unfortunately.
