Hi All,

Due to my obsession with textured glass, I couldn't resist this one.

 :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

23cm in height and I think it is Czech. Can anyone please enlighten me?

As always, many thanks. :D

(I also found another variant of the "Bark" vase :? )
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

I am not sure, but would also guess Czech....these are often found on e-bay described as Whitefriars....come in quite a few colours.  Emmi

Yep unpolished base rim looks good for post WWII Czech ....and I feel I should be able to ID further but I'm scared of the pasting I'll get from Le Maitre if I get it wrong .... :roll:

Le Maitre???
purr-leeze, you make me sound unapproachable.....
This is, as Della suspects SU.....
but no clear authorship at the moment, and factories are limited to two of the four SU production units.
Nice  buying, again, Della, very pleased for you.
regards,
Marcus

Hi,

Della has the triangular version, me, a four sided version.

These variants were designed by Vladislav Urban, for Sklo Union, zavod Rosice, and date to 1970. No production numbers as yet, but I will post them when discovered.

regards,

Marcus

I assume the base is indented on the four sided one too Marcus?

Max <~trying to think of ways of distinguishing 'bark' vases.  :roll:  :wink:

Max,
Absolutely. Typical SU base-well with matte polishing.

Hi,
Can now confirm that the pattern is "Moravia".
Square variants are pattern numbers 1502/200 and 1502/250.
Date is slightly earlier, 1969.
Gottwaldov exhibition numbers 281 and 289 respectively.
Sorry Della, not yet found a pattern number for the triangular variant.
Regards,
Marcus
