Frantisek Zemek candle holder
« on: May 03, 2013, 04:21:02 PM »
Nice Zemek candle holder found today (mistook it for Skrdlovice first due to the colours), 18 cm high.

It looks like a piece from the range shown at the Expo 1958 >> Link to CGR 1958/6
Seems to be the colour combination "amber - rosa" :)

According to a Sypka auction catalogue it was made at Borske Sklo, Novy Bor.

Great piece Rocco, I like these. They are not all that common, I see about one a year or less. There are other colourways too. I would have definitely suggested a Mstisov- Karlovarske Sklo attribution. Sypka is not always correct, do they reference CGR? The article does not seem specific.... the pattern numbers for it in CGR look Mstisov Karlovrske don't they?

Thank you Robert!
I like that whole Zemek range shown in CGR 1958/6; as far as I can see there is no glassworks specified...

I would have thought Mstisov, too.

Wayne has pics of a Uranium green one in his encyclopedia >> Link
And of a fabulous vase, too.

The seller I bought it from had several very tempting pieces (Kotik propeller vase, Jelinek "Olympie" ashtray), but I decided to go for this one ;)
