Thank you, Anik!
I like "Azur" ;)
But I like colourful glass, my least favourite are all-colourless pieces (speaking of Skrdlovice).

So I was extremely happy when I found this lovely Vizner piece today at a carboot (at 3,- Euro a real bargain).
10 cm wide, 13 cm high, azur and green. Not sure about the pattern number...

OK, I think I've changed my mind again...  I like azur, especially when combined with green. 
SUPER PIECE!

PALEČEK, Ladislav

I finally got round to taking some pix of this bowl I found at a market here in Sydney Australia a year ago!

I like Palecek's designs... they're artistic and highly attractive, and in most cases, perfectly utalitarian. 
Thank you for sharing, vetraio50.   :)


I also got a new Skrdlovice piece, though I'm not 100% sure what it is.  I've looked through the pattern books and decided that it's quite likely a Strobchova design from 1964 (6427?).  It's 9cm tall, 12cm wide and weighs 1267g.  It's a very light smokey amethyst with a purple 'egg'.  It retains its original gold Skrdlovice label.

I am jealous ;)

Nothing as spectacular here as Anik's vase, but I lusted for one of the swirled Rudolf Beranek bowls for quite a while, so I was extremely happy to find one at the fleamarket a few weeks ago.
43 cm long, and the most colourful example I have seen so far :)

@Kevin: lovely Palecek bowl! I only have an ashtray from this range...

Thanks,
Michael

I really like your platter, Michael, especially with the stronger colors in it.  What a wonderful find!

P.S. Michael, do you think my piece is a Strobachova?

Hi Anik,
sorry for the delayed reply.
I did some searching through the pattern books etc., and the most similar thing I found was the Strobachova design you mentioned.
So it seems to be a cigarette box! :)

I really like the shape and the colours...

Michael

Thank you Michael.  :)   

P.S. I know the pattern book says it's a cigarette box, but I really can't see it being used as such.  It looks like a bean-shaped vase.
