Some New P/W Czech (Sklo) Buys
« on: May 21, 2006, 10:31:25 PM »
Hi

Some p/w Czech glass I bought recently while involved in debate ‘Chalet or Czech’

František Vizner long vase or jardinière 1961, 6.2” long, 4.2” high

Small Sklo Union vase, 3.3” high

Harrtil bowl, 5” across, 2.4” high

Here is a giggle (Marcus) link  

Better image of previously posted bowl

Beautiful Sklo Union Paperweight in neodymium with bubbles perfectly balanced & as good as any piece of Caithness. 3.6” high and almost bullet shaped it has a yellow export label.

I think this medium sized bowl is Sklo – can you confirm this Marcus?

This small ashtray bowl has been seen before. It has perfect controlled bubbles and is a blue case in pink. Often attributed to Murano I feel it is Czech, what do others think

Rudolf Jurnikl 'cog' bowl for Rudolfova Hut 1970s

I'd be interested to know about the medium bowl as I've had one in amber. I thought mine was an ashtray though. How big is it, please?

Hi Tiger

The bowl is 6" diam, 1" high - but I am sure I have seen smaller and larger ones

Looks to me the neodymium PW is ZBS; the blue bowl is TTBOMK Finnish (Toikka); the nailmould ashtray Murano.

Great buys Adam 8)

Good to see another paperweight like mine - with the same sticker.   "Neodymium" - is that the curious bluey/green tinge that can be seen in it?  Fantastically tactile piece of glass and beautifully made I agree  http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/misc578.jpg I got it as a swap - but I think I came off better.

Ivo - sorry to be so thick - but what is ZBS?  :oops:

On a lighter note, I've just seen a small Sklo Union vase similar to yours shown,  but identical to one I showed previously with internal ridges, described as a Victorian/Edwardian eye bath on eBay.

ZBS = Zelezny Brod Sko

Anne your weight is same as mine - 'Neodymium colours glass in delicate shades ranging from pure violet through wine-red and warm grey'

Simple test - notice how in different light your weight changes colour from grey blue through to violet - sometimes known as 'rare earth'

Nice swap Anne - great to have the Sklo label

Zeleznobrodske Sklo.

The link has me reaching to peel the Glassexport and Chribska labels from my piece (I think not) :lol:

I believe the paper-weights were based on designs by Jelinek.

Regards,

Marcus

A shot in the dark here, but, any chance of this bowl being made by Sowerby, Davidsons or Jobling? It's just that when I placed my amber bowl next to an amber Sowerby bowl the colour matched exactly. This kind of blue colour on your bowl was used by both Jobling and Davidsons, not sure about Sowerby though.

I probably soud silly as the design does not remind me of any of these glass companies.  :oops:

I noticed also that the glass was very good quality.

Both colors were used by a wide variety of companies.
I'm inclined to go with Ivo's Oiva Toikka attribution pro tem, otherwise iittala.

To note and clarify:
As mentionned in other topics Marcus has noted that the Bohemia label was used on the products of factories NOT part of Sklo Union as well.

Neither ZBS nor Chribska were part of Sklo Union.
