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.

Very unusual, MIchael. I've got a similar piece that looks like Bohuslav Beranek to me, certainly Skrdlovice. I've not tracked down the pattern number yet, although it could well be PN 54188.  It is clearly an attempt to create opalescent glass, but it looks different from other opalescent I have. My piece looks a little more yellow and less orange than yours.  I wonder where the attribution for the Fischer came from.

PS I see that Vienna is now ranked the number one liveable city in the world. It must be all the Skrdlovice you've found there. But on that basis how did Vancouver make #3?

Just to show I've not been entirely idle, here's a vase suggested to me by Robert. Turned out to Vizner, PN 7201/35. In the pattern  book the  35 is scratched out and 30 is substituted. My one is 35 cm tall.
