Podebrady pressed glass vase by Vaclav Horacek
« on: May 22, 2013, 04:40:16 PM »
Not a very common piece of Czech pressed glass:
huge jardiniere (22.5 cm wide, 17 cm high) in pressed lead crystal, designed by Vaclav Horacek for Podebrady glassworks around 1968.
Took me a while to identify it: >> Link to CGR

Unfortunately with several flaws, but I am sure it will look great with flowers in it ;)

Shame about the flaws, but well done, Michael (including finding it in the CGR).

P.S. I've also come around to using some of my imperfect glass. I've got 2 50s Skrdlovice pieces (a platter and a bowl) with some scratches which are on the living room coffee table and are used to hold fruit and sweets... much nicer looking than the Corelle kitchen plates and bowls I used earlier. :)

Thank you, Anik!
It is a nice design, and despite the flaws still a quite impressive piece...

One advantage of slightly damaged pieces -- they can be used without much worrying, and still look striking.
But I use almost all my Czech pressed glass vases; especially the bulgy Vizner vases are perfect for tulips :)
