Sorry to bring this older thread up again, but is there any way we could date these pieces? I have just bought a 5349/3 model in lilac and on the net  dates range from 1910-1930, all adds I have to say.

Hi Anne]

The Passau have one of the vases in their collection I believe and they dated it 1920-1940

Hey M,

Thanks, I did come across that image via the GMB, but there is another date underneath, 1920-1930 and searchresults go far as 1910 so it's all a little vague ... I was silently hoping if there could a more accurate date known by now. I haven't got the landscape vase, even though it is on the same catalogue page, but the one with the dropping foliage.

I haven't received it yet, and I'm not familiar with bohemian glass but i'm curious. It is coloured lilac and thought I'll search for some info in the meantime.

I've not been doing any glass for quite a while now so I'm  not aware of any recent developments, but from the information I knew before, Kralik information, details and records are extremely hard to come by.  If I recall correctly there was a political reason why they are not available (I seem to recall they have been locked away somewhere governmental?) but I cannot remember what that was.

So, finding any definitive info may be extremely difficult.  Hence such a surprise when that colour plate was revealed by Mike on this thread.

Here's my vase and a bit of the carpet I need to take some decent pictures.


It's so light in weight and delicate compared to the heavy VSL pieces.

gorgeous !  Yes I realise what you mean about comparing the weight although my red one is quite substantial, not lightweight and I wouldn't describe mine as 'delicate' to be honest.  But neither would I think of it as especially heavy if you see what I mean.

Perhaps it's just me, but it weighs nothing compared to what I'm used to and the glass is quite thin which makes it delicate to me better be careful. I wonder whether it has ever been used as a vase, it looks brand new in and out.

no,it's not you.  I do know what you mean. Perceptually it looks in photos as though it should be very weighty, but in the hand, it doesn't weigh anything like overlay crystal pieces.  Weight is hard to convey but I agree with you.  On mine the casing it opaque and solid looking but I still think it's very fine casing.
