Round bowl with fishes weeds and bubbles - Tchecoslovaquie
« on: September 17, 2012, 08:21:05 PM »
This sweet little vase is quite detailed, its around 8inches by 8 inches. I have found examples in white and a version with horses on the web but no ID.
Posts on here mention the base mark was used for glass that was imported to France.  Does anyone know who made it please ?   Sadly someone has turned it into a lamp base, still lovely though.

It's by Feigl & Morawetz, Libochovice. Datewise probably late 1930s-1950s. Have you tested it under UV? There's a chance it could be uranium glass.

Excellant, I have recently started collected Libochovice and should have known that, maybe thats what drew me to it, I only bought it this weekend. It was covered in candlewax and grime and has cleaned up beautifully.

I had tested it, it has a low uranium content, only the thicker parts glow which gives a ghostly effect.
Thank you, I only had 2 mystery items in my collection and you solved both in 24 hours.      :)

If you only get a ghostly glow on the thicker parts, it does not contain uranium (uranium always has a bright green glow); more likely it contains manganese. That probably pushes the date into the 1950s.

You either have a very small or a manufacturer limited collection to only have two unknowns. Many of us have more unknowns than knowns
