Idetifying a Ladislav Oliva Plate
« on: July 14, 2014, 01:40:28 PM »
Hi,
I'm newbie here and this is my first topic.
I have had this plate for more than 15 years, from the stamps I believe it's designed by Ladislav Oliva
Is it a rare piece?
Any information that can help, the plate is very heavy weighs 5 kg and the diameter is around 35cm

Thanks in advance

Hi, welcome to the board!
Wow what a piece to start with...
Yes, very rare and very desirable, one of the most iconic pieces of postwar Czech glass :)

For instance featured in the Ricke book, "Czech glass 1945-1980, design in an age of adversity"

Values are very subjective. Something is only worth what somebody is willing to pay for it, in that place, at that time, we don't really tend to discuss them here, it's not what the board is for.

However, with such a well-known but scarce piece, I'm sure it would find it's own value in a specialist auction, properly advertised on the web, allowing for international buyers.
I bet I can't afford it!

Thanks again,
But I have seen many designs of glass plates by Oliva.
Are there all in the same category, I mean can all of them be considered as rare pieces or there are some more rare than others.

Regards

Hi,

It is a really interesting piece. In terms of price, Oliva's best designs tend to be on the high end of factory produced Czech Glass.  I'd say check eBay, but eBay prices for Oliva pieces can be above what most people would pay. It was designed in1960 and was in production until at least 1967.  An Internet search should at least give you a range of prices.

A piece I'd find very hard to sell.

I've done a search and tried to find something similar on eBay, but couldn't find any,
I found items like vases, sculptures and paper weights only.
However thanks for the info.

Regards
