Hello, my first posting in these threads!
I'm not yet a collector, but I do have my first bit of Skrdlovice. My prize from the fair on Sunday. I NEED to show it off!
Ladislav Oliva, '76.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Wow, one of the most beautiful Skrdlovice pieces ever, high up on my wishlist -- I am green with envy ;)
Great find, Sue!

And great that you joined our thread with this stunning piece.

@ Anik: thanks for your comment, the colour of the Emanuel Beranek vase is really nice (and quite unusual)

Thank-you  :)
- I am madly in love with it - so much so that I forgot I also recently acquired a fabby Jan Kotek '52 Propellor vase from Anik, same lovely colourway.  :-[
When we got the Oliva home to Christine's, we could not believe it is only 12 inches tall - it LOOKS so much bigger than that.
I need a third bit to qualify as a collector though. I have my beady eyes on something else rather special though. ;)

Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;D but not my first bit, Anik, that was my fabby Propellor.
I'm now going to be after the Vizner toffee bit you have, :-* but I need to check my account first and see if I need to move funds.  ::)

Adding an image taken in darker lighting. :D

Sue,

Fabulous--and apparently rare--piece. It's a piece that none of the Skrdlovice collectors I know have, unless Anik and Michael have been hiding their pieces. You have certainly started a Skrldovice collection at the top, a Kotik and this Oliva. Was it at Solihull on Sunday that you bought it?

I want one too! Actually, there is one on ebay now, correctly labeled even, but the misguided owner wants 1.150 euro for it... It might fetch that sort of money far in the future, but now that's completely over the top.

But congratulations, Sue, on starting so well with your Czech collection!

Yes, I got it at the National - from Danny Walker.  8)
There's one for sale here...  a good bit more than I paid, but not over E1,000.

Thanks for the link, Sue. Not that I could afford that sort of money...  I always wonder what sort of people those kind of dealers do business with. Obviously not most of the glass collectors I know :). But I'm a patient girl. I know what I want to pay for it, and I expect it won't be impossible to find it at that price level if I'm willing to look around for a while.

Sue's gorgeous vase is a hard act to follow, but I got a piece today which I found pretty darn exciting... At first glance, it looks like your regular Frantisek Vizner 7411 'beer' vase with perhaps a little extra 'froth' at the top.  But my item is actually a non-pattern.  It's 18cm tall and a little over 10cm wide (rather than 19cm x 9cm). Oooooooo, aaaaaaaaa.  ;)
