Those are scrumptious!  ;D

One of my recent additions from the Dutch collector's fair, a 7425 by Svododa. Not new to this thread, but certainly new to my collection. The story I got from the seller is that it was picked up by a member of a Dutch sports club that made a visit to Czechoslovakia in the '80s. Which is sort of the right date for this one, I guess.

Oh, and I picked up another 6915, this time in clear and cobalt. It was too cheap to resist, even if I already got one in light blue and cobalt.

Svoboda's 7425 is a wonderful design and one of my Svoboda Skrdlovice-era favourites. Astrid, yours is the first I've seen in a colour other than dark pink... I think it's an exciting find.

Congratulations and thank you for sharing!

I love the Svoboda vase, Astrid -- it is on my wishlist for quite a while, but the only one I have seen here was in an high-end vintage design store, labeled "Murano -- Galliano Ferro" and cost 350,- Euro.
I told the seller that it is Czech, but she refused to believe me (as usual 8) )

The Emanuel Beranek torpedo vase from Australia is great, too; it is almost as colourful as its chunky brother I showed recently ;D >> Link

Michael, I wouldn't have bought mine if it had been 350, as you might guess :). The fact that so many dealers apparently can get away with wrongly labelling their wares, and asking 3 times what would sound reasonable to me never fails to amaze me...

Another nice piece of 1950s Skrdlovice in my collection:
vase by Alice Maresova Smolkova (thanks Kevin G and Jindrich for researching the name in the pattern book >> Link), PN 5514.
Was also featured in the Pardubice exhibition.

And a funny bird in Azure by Jan Exnar, PN 8842/10

Michael, I am so envious of your 'big lips' Smolkova vase!  I think it is one of the most interesting 50s Skrdlovice pieces around. Such a fantastic find.

P.S. The Exnar bird is lovely. :)

Here is a Hora vase just bought. Signed 'Hora' to base - I think it's c1986.
