Tchecoslovaquie fruit bowl
« on: July 07, 2012, 03:54:16 PM »
Bought today for a few pounds alarge and heavy fruit bowl/basket in clear moulded glass with thick applied handle - 11" wide by 10.5" high - marked in the bowl 'Tchecoslovaquie' - so I know its Czech and probably for French market but does anyone recognise the shape and factory - I have seen these baskets often but much smaller and unmarked.

Thanks Adam

Newhall, Libochovice before 1958 page 34: basket # 2178/A - 290 x 200 mm looks like a perfect match  :)

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I don't have that book, only Newhall - Sklo Union. Art before industry - interesting it's pre 1958. Thanks for ID and factory code.

It's the same book. The Libochovice catalogue is undated but known to be pre-1958. Some of those designs were made for many years.
