possible Czech. cased bowl.
« on: May 04, 2013, 01:26:45 PM »
I'd seen something similar recently, alhough didn't buy it, and having looked at Mark Hill's book thought there was a chance both pieces might have been designs by Karel Wunsch for Novy Bor.          However, neither of them have quite the simple abstract look of book examples of 'Trial' and 'Dual' designs from the '60's and '70's - so now not really sure - perhaps they might be later offerings.          In this bowl, the base glass has a pale peach tint, and the overlay is a sort of slate colour.         Suppose it could be VSL.                  Diameter is about 8.5" (215mm), and no marks that I can see.                 The star cut is quite accurate, and although there's some base wear, it's obviously not ancient.
Grateful for any thoughts, and thanks for looking. :)
