Some New P/W Czech (Sklo) Buys
« Reply #10 on: May 23, 2006, 08:55:19 PM »
Good point Peter, my fault - Marcus pointed this out in a recent thread.

So it was used as an export label for Sklo (sometimes you get the factory label as well) and how many other Czech factories?

I only just recieved a good p/w Czech glass book and cannot easily find information refernce this.

Thanks

Adam,
Following the nationalisation of all Czech and Slovak glass companies, export relations were put into the hands of two organisations, Skloexport, offices in Liberec and Prague (better known in the West as Glassexport) and Jablonex, (offices in Jablonec,) charged with the export of beads, and costume jewellery manufactured in and around Jablonec nad Nisou.

Confusion arises immediately, when Jablonec-produced ashtrays, carry Glassexport labels.

So it is perhaps easier to say whose glass did not carry Glassexport labels (ie; Bohemia Glass/ Bohemia Crystal, Made in Czechoslovakia.)

NO factory based in the Slovak region carried this label.

For the rest, which did:
Exbor,
Egermann,
Harrachov,
Borske Sklo,
Bohemia Podebrady,
Borocrystal,
Zeleznobrodske Sklo (ZBS)
Karlovarske Sklo Moser,
Crystalex,
Cesky Kristal,
Kvetna,
Moravske Sklarny,
Sklo Union (all four production units)
Chribska.
Inwald.
VUUS,
Jablonecke Sklo.

Note that it is entirely possible that the Glassexport label may also appear on glass from Skrdlovice, and other small series glass artwork.

Any label attributable to Sklo Union carries the old Inwald crossed Js.

Please, for new-comers sakes, sklo in Czech means glass, so to use the word alone, can be confusing. If anyone means Sklo Union, please use the complete term to refer to that organisation. Not all readers who arrive here will have sufficient knowledge to realise what is being referred to.

regards,

Marcus

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.


Ooops, sorry, I missed Ivo's attribution.  :oops:

The range the turquoise bowl is from is called Kastehelmi (translates roughly as 'Dewdrop'), originally designed 1964 by Toikka for Nuutaj√§rvi. It had a long production period, I'm not sure until when, comprising various bowls, plates, coasters, candleholders, cups etc. Produced in many different colours—the blue colour shown, clear, amber, dark green, grey and others.

I've never seen any with Iittala stickers, which would date them post circa 1992, from when Nuutajärvi glass was marketed as Iittala.
There's a candleholder/vase in my album

Item #7
I have a similar item ...at least it looks like it belongs to the same series. Terry also has one.

 I have it in my mind that these were made at Harrachov but not sure where I got that idea from.

I have 2 scallop shaped ones which were identified by Paul as probably Seguso.

Aaaaaah Seguso ....always a good standby
Sorry but I've lived with this one for several years, it's not happy anywhere near any of my Murano and insists on being alone if not with it's known Czech friends.

I fully expect it to do a Czech peasant jig to strains of the balalaika any moment now. Seriously, I am as sure as I can possibly be without "proof".

Hi,
Peter, did you not buy an example of  Harrachov "controlled bubble" work some time ago? Does this seem right in comparison to that piece? Yes I know scale is different, but it is always difficult to be definitive about some of these items.
Regards,
Marcus
