Astrid, great piece! I would think that the Oliva attribution is correct -- but wait what the experts say...

If the vase comes from ebay, I have seen it too, and was quite tempted to bid on it (but decided to go for the Ichendorf piece)

I can only show two new purchases (nice, but nothing spectacular):
- small Jaroslav Beranek "Andromeda" vase, 12.5 cm high
- Emanuel Beranek vase, 23 cm high (I guess PN 5987, though the hole is in the wrong place)

And I have to admit that I suffered a severe attack of jealousy today when I browsed through David's gallery and saw his new Vizner vase 8)

Ha, when I'm bidding on something like this I always wonder if I'm up against other forum members.

Astrid, wonderful vase!  My first thought was Vizner as well, but with a bit of searching, I think Oliva is correct:  1989 Skrdlovice Glassexport catalogue

Michael I really like your little 'Andromeda'... I've got one in clear, but I much prefer the colours in yours.

Astrid,

For what it's worth, I see it as the Oliva, too.  I 'll bet it looks fabulous on display. It's big and beautiful.

I'm so happy with my newest buy... a Roubicek 7212/17 just like the one David posted in the original 'Skrdlovice' thread.  I thought it looked appealing in photographs, but in real life, it's even better.

Quite an unusual piece of (late) Skrdlovice added to my collection:

PN 8803, by Czech studio glass artist Jaroslav Matous.

That is unusual!  The drawing in the designs book has less rounded 'things' in the neck, but the 8803 in the 1989 Skrdlovice Glassexport catalogue is similar to yours. 

To be honest, without a label I don't think I would have recognised it.  Well done, Michael -- an odd-looking piece is always a good piece to have.

Without the label I probably wouldn't have recongnized it either ;D

Each of the pieces from this range seems to differ widely -> Link to a pic from the Pardubice exhibition on Jindrich's site.
I like the shape, but would have prefered to find one which is more "transparent"...

Unusual addition, Michael. Very unSkrdlovice-like, if there is such an animal.  Interesting the range of variations, too.  I'm coming to see the pattern books as more of a rough guide than a tight prescription.
