No need to apologize -- these mirrored pattern are confusing, and many of these Emanuel Berank designs do look so similar to each other...
I showed a blue and green vase last week, which I assumed is the Emanuel Beranek PN 5987 (although a little different to the drawing in the book as well regarding the position of the hole)

Hi,  My piece does have a little blue in it, not apparent in my Picasa pictures and which you can only catch fleeting glimpses of unless you look at the piece from the bottom.

Grown by one again, a small but nice piece:
Jirina Zertova ashtray, PN 6029, in quite an interesting colourway (light green cased in amethyst, which makes the whole piece look sort of grey)

Another great find, Michael, one that certainly make my week.  Zertova's design are very good and this a really effective colourway.  A great collection is made one piece at a time.

Last week, I won a Jan Beranek 5988 on ebay which is also very light green cased in amethyst.  I love the colours, but I never expected my piece to glow.

Anik, nice vase in a really nice colourway, I love it, too :) I have this amethyst colour only in my two Zertova pieces so far...

So do all green Skrdlovice pieces from this period contain Uranium? -- Will have to test my collection.

Thanks David, I totally agree that Zertova's designs are very desirable, but unfortunately (apart from this bubbly range) really hard to find...

Not all green 50s Skrdlovice contain uranium.  I've got an Emanuel Beranek vase from 1954 in the same wonderful green-cased-in-amethyst colourway as the one I posted above, but it doesn't have one hint of  a glow. I've also got a bluish-green vase by Rudolf Beranek from 1955 with no uranium. 

From my experience, very few Skrdlovice items glow.

Thanks for the info, Anik!
Will have to borrow the UV torch from work...

The find last week at a very big Belgian antiques and collectibles market in Brugge. 5 km of market - and only 3 or 4  czech pieces, two of which I bought (I already had the other two). One was a nice prunted Rhapsody Mstisov basket (10 euro, couldn't leave it for that price). On to the true find.

The owner was trying to interest me in a few huge Val St. Lambert vases that were attractive, but very expensive (and I don't collect Belgian glass). And then I noticed he had this one lying around on the floor. "Oh, that one. Don't know what it is. You can have it for 25 euro." Needless to say I rescued this nice Skrdlovice vase by Frantisek Vizner in azure, pattern 6855. It even has a gold Bohemia label, so unlike my 6860, it's probably period manufacture.

Astrid -- great find!!

And according to the pattern book these were first made in azure only, so yours is in the "original" colour.
Lovely...
