Vase ID needed?
« on: February 07, 2013, 04:31:11 PM »
I'm pretty sure this is 30/50s Czech but posting here to be sure. It's 6.5 inches high and I think would have had a metal mesh top.

Any ideas?

would imagine you're almost certainly right..........this stepped ribbed body with that shape of foot occurs on a number of pieces in Ruth A. Forsythe's book, although I don't see your colour there.         The book indicates that pieces later than 1938 were not included, so maybe this sort of pink was a later colour  -  the mesh tops are often missing, unfortunately. :)

I think bavarian might be another possibility. The two pieces from my collection show a similar marbled decor.
Apart from the lilac they also have a few pink-ish streaks. It´s the shape of the stylised mould-blown knob of
the lidded box which makes me think in that direction.

Dirk might be right. The clear casing is not the norm for the Czech pieces

Jean Beck also had some marbled pieces - vaguely similar. His supplying companies were
Regenhütte, Poschinger and Gistl. Possibly worth investigating...  :)

Dirk may well be correct - I'm sure he knows light years more than me about products from that part of the world :)         This is not an area that I'm good at, remotely (and my knowledge of Bavarian might be written on the back of a small postage stamp)  -   although looking again in the book there do seem to be a reasonable percentage of the paler coloured Czech pieces that show clear casing.
I was going with the shape and the foot more than anything, since Forsythe's book is very quiet on this pinky colour, and it's true that her pieces are not really marbled like this example.         Spatter and marbling are more the order of the day.
As with Dirk's picture, I think on reflection that in view of the size of this example then it may be that it's a lid that's missing rather than a grill/mesh. :)

sorry  -  for "spatter and marbling"  it should have read  "spatter and mottling" :)

I´m not discounting bohemian as another possibility, though.  :)

ah, are we back to Czech then..... ;D ;D  ;)

Doubtless in view of the historic/geographical connection - and quality of glass products -  glass labels carrying the word 'Bohemian' are seen commonly still in the U.K. on new/newish products  -  it obviously remains a good selling point.

 ;) I´m also thinking the glass is a bit thick-walled? Most decorated bohemian pieces I own
are lightweights really...  ???
