Double-Ended Cased Topaz Vase
« on: January 12, 2013, 06:02:27 PM »
The vase is ringing distant bells, but I can't pin it down.

It's 150mm / 6" tall, a continuous curved tube of smokey-topaz glass cased in blue-tinted clear, with two fire-polished openings and a flat polished base in the middle. Plenty of base-wear.

Any clues?

Looks like Skrdlovice, pattern # 5505 by Jan Kotik, 1955, lovely vase!

Wow. I never would have guessed Czech.

Thanks for that.

Found another example here: http://www.webareal.cz/ceskoslovenskesklo/25-STARE-CLANKY-OLD-ARTICLES/1006-Jan-Kotik

And a quick hit of Google shows different vases with the same colourway.

Thanks again.

Gorgeous vase Nic.

Also can I ask what the proper translation of your "motto" is please-  Colligit Ut Spargat   - Not being a Latin scholar I was curious.

Google translate came up with "Gathered together as toss"  - I am sure that is not it!

Thanks for all the comments and further links.

Ha. Reliable old Google. It's approximately 'it is collected so that it may be spread'.
