This one really puzzles me...

Very tall (43 cm) vase, blue and amethyst glass. Flat polished base, edge of the base not bevelled but perfectly smooth (fire-polished?).

Colours would fit with Czech glass from the early 1960s (see the comparison to a Stahlikova ashtray), but I cannot find anything in the Skrdlovice pattern books. Another Czech contender would probably be Chribska / Hospodka. The base finish would be a little unusual for Czech glass from that period, though.

It does look vaguely similar to some Adam Jablonski pieces, too, but I think the colours are completely wrong.

Due to the base I am even considering Murano...

Or maybe I should look much further east? ;)

Thanks for any lead!
Michael

I went straight to the pics, before reading what you wrote.
I normally do that, so that I'm not influenced by anything said.
My guts said; "Jablonski...?"

Thank you, Sue!
Yes, I wouldn't rule out Jablonski at all...
Yet I wasn't able to find a single piece online which didn't have a clear (=colourless) casing.
And considering that his pieces show such a strong influence by the organic Czech pieces from the late 1950s, especially Hospodka and Emanuel Beranek...
The colours do look very Czech ;)

Jablonski can sometimes surprise...

Have you seen this piece before? It's mine,  8) Anik was the finder of this treasure. I haven't photographed it. I do need to, with a light inside it. It has so many layers and the inclusions... it is stunning.

(Scroll down a little to get to the big pic.)

However, it is clear cased, as is my other huge tall scuplture thingy.

Beautiful, Sue - and very un-Jablonski'ish indeed ;D

It's much more Motzfeldt than Jablonski. The sort of thing you simply do not care who the maker is, although knowing AND having the name Jablonski does make it a just little bit more special.  ;D

But it's useful also, in demonstrating that Jablonski is a man of many talents, some beyond what one has come to expect.
