Beranek glass identification, patter, maker etc. help required
« on: February 03, 2013, 09:17:51 PM »
Dear ALL, I have joined this forum to get your help in identifying a piece of Czech glass I personally think is stunning. It makes my stomach wobble when I view and handle and especially in certain lights. I need to know more about this Beranek piece. Can anyone help me please. New user stanleyxxx

I'm struggling to compress my images and I will happily PM you with the pictures. Sorry tech doughnut.

Hello Stanleyxxxx and welcome to the GMB. :)

Here is some information about resizing pictures: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34093.0.html
Maybe it'll help.

New Czech glass is always welcome at GMB! If you open an image with software like Irfanview and save it as another file, specify the file size when you do it, 100KB and that should be OK for uploading here. (I am not particularly handy with technology either),

Hi again,

I've managed to resize two pictures, but I'm afraid I was standing in the wrong queue when they were handing out technical wizardry -- the photos are now a bit on the small size. :-\

Very interesting vase, but I don't think I've seen it in any catalogue or website. Hopefully someone will be able to help out.

There are three or four designers who may have done a design like this at Beranek, including Havelka who also designed later at Princ. Vases by Kolbabek bear some similarities too. I am quite surprised it is not signed with their name on the base, as this was quite commonly done by factory workers, usually in capital letters to tell the owner of the piece who it was by. This was definitely designed after 1994, likely even after 2000,  which is when the available records become sketchy unfortunately. But not impossible. The factory is now closed but the old website can be located and still visited via an internet search. http://www.refinex.cz/bg/ Also, try a search of http://www.cs-sklo.cz/ceskoslovenskesklo/ run by Jindrich, an English speaker who is a friend of GMB, a site for general CZ glass pleasure... A high quality ultra modern style vase from a historic factory......
