Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Michael!!!!!   Absolutely super pieces.  I just LOVE the bear, and the Zertova is a beauty. 

Oh dear, I'm so jealous -- but, of course, in the most sincere and sweetest way.  You really outdid yourself this time.  Your collection is the best.  :-*

Thank you ;)

I was so happy about finding the Zemek piece -- whenever I had looked through the 1954 pattern book I got caught on the drawing of the bear ashtray.
Much easier to remember that pattern than one of the dozens similarish ashtrays with pulled lobes ;D

I wanted to show off my Jindrich Beranek paperweight.  It's only 9cm tall but weighs 1089g.  Robert very kindly told me that the colours suggest a date of c.1960.    Normally, I'm not very fond of soft hues, but they look great on this piece.   :)

Very nice, Anik -- this must be one of the earliest paperweight designs then.
I love the soft colours, too :)

I'm excited about the newest addition to my Skrdlovice collection...  a wonderful Karel Wunsch 8214 bowl with a folded rim.  What makes the design special is that though it looks like a deep bowl (even when you look in), the inner well is exceptionally shallow -- something you only realise when you reach in.  The optic effect is fabulous.

My bowl is 16.5cm wide, 8cm tall and weighs 2122g.

Oooo and I found it here in Poland.  :)

Great piece Anik, these bowls are really impressive in person. I agree about the optical effect. The weight of this one must make the large bowls 5-6 KG or more! I have not seen many of this pattern,

Thank you, Robert.  It is really impressive in person -- what a great design.

I'd love to the the large version of this bowl!  I expect it wasn't very cost-effective to produce the large size, so I suppose finding one is near impossible.  Maybe one day....   :)

Not as spectacular as Anik's bowl, but some nice new Skrdlovice pieces have entered my collection ;)

Interesting that the first and the last are from the very beginning resp. the very end of the Beranek glassworks:

- classic pulegoso swan, designed by Emanuel Beranek, PN (possibly) 4611
- inbetween a nice green-cased yellow egg by Vizner
- sculptural paperweight by Vladimir Dostal, PN 61 2004 01/11

These paperweights are a fine design - they look simple but have a great visual impact.

LOVE the Vizner!  It is my most favourite Vizner design.   :)

And I really like both Vladimir Dostal weights -- the sharp colours give them character.
