Tall green vase with "lozenge" type additions
« on: December 03, 2012, 05:17:44 PM »
The vase measures 22.5 cm tall, 10cm wide and pretty heavy. The base is totally flat.

It may be a Prachen vase by Josef Hospodka I think iirc.
Difficult to tell from the photos though because the colours don't show well.

These things are called prunts. And even if it is heavy and well made I'm not convinced of Prachen - it could be anything really.

It has similarities with this one ?
But others I've seen do not have the same prunts.
It doesn't feature in HI Sklo Lo Sklo unless I've missed it.

Hospodka and Prachen is correct, a bit convoluted but that was my conclusion too: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,28051.0.html

So, it is an all green Prachen then by Hospodka.

Thanks as always.
