ART DECO? vases - ID = Libochovice, Czechoslovakia
« on: April 08, 2015, 06:55:34 PM »
Hi there,

Any advice on these would be appreciated, Are these Art Deco? They are approx 7.5 inches tall by 6 inches at the widest point. They also weigh considerably heavy at 1KG  (1000 grams) each!

Thank you :)

(M. Newhall, Sklo Union Glass - Art before Industry)
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
