I'm very pleased with one of my newest Skrdlovice collection additions:  A Jaroslav Svoboda set from 1970.  It consists of a vase, a bowl, and an ashtray.  I really like its simplicity and clarity.

Lovely Anik! :mrgreen:

I would be happy with one of them...
How do you always manage to find those beautiful and rare ranges as sets? ;D

Nice addition: blue and rose torpedo shape vase with 3 "drapes", 22.5 cm high.

If I got the PN right it should be 5067 (so quite an early design); unfortunately the designer's name is not quite legible, but I guess Emanuel Beranek ???

Hi Michael, a nice vase. It is Jan Beranek 5631.

Thanks a lot Robert! :)
I am a little confused now, as my vase looks quite different to the drawing of the Jan Beranek 5631 vase in the pattern book (which seems to be wider shaped, and it is hard to judge if it has the 3 repeating drapes with a bump in the lower part like the PN I suggested -- which looks exactly like my vase).

edit: found a pic of the Jan Beranek vase in >> CGR 1958/1, still not convinced...
What makes you think that 5067 is not likely?

Hi Michael, the height is a good match for the Jan Beranek. I can't really read the Emanuel Beranek height. I don't see the colourway much before 1953. Most pre 53 designs I have are topas. Also I have seen a few of these and the handmade shaping seems to vary a lot. I attach a picture of one I have. The CGR photo does not show the vase very clearly but the tooling between the 3 lobes can be very pronounced. I have seen examples where the lobes reach the bottom of the vase, as in CGR and give the vase a distinct pear shape. (Also the Jan Beranek pattern drawing is quite poor). Finding this vase in several colourways, as I have done (elsewhere too) suggests to me, a mid fifties approach to production rather than earlier, simpler times.

Thanks again Robert!
Your vase really looks different to the drawing in the patternbook and to the pic in CGR (so there seems to be a lot of variation). I would never have guessed the PN.

So it is rather the colourway that makes it a mid-fifties piece? Does that mean that it would be unusual for a design from 1950 to be produced a few years later?

I cannot read the height of the Jan Beranek vase, but the Emanuel Beranek is given at 24 cm, so (rather) close to my 22.5 cm.

Anyway -- as you said a nice design, and I am happy with either attribution :)

Two more... 8)

First a very elegant Emanuel Beranek jardiniere, PN 59102, 26 cm wide.

Second one took me a while to figure out, but I am rather sure this quite unusual vase is a Rudolf Beranek design, PN 7807, 12 cm high.

Thanks for looking,
Michael

Great find.

Good spot on the second one, Michael. I wouldn't recognize it from the pattern book.
