Antonin Drobnik vase
« on: July 24, 2015, 09:18:27 PM »
I was always interested in propaganda glasses especially from the communist era (you can say it is a perversion). Anyway, I picked up a heavy (5.5kg)  Antonin Drobnik vase, I assume from the 1950s. I looked through some of my books, found some Drobnik pieces but nothing like this. If you can provide more information please share it.
Thanks,

It reminds me of the very famous Antonin Dvorak vase. A superb, sculptural piece.

I don't think it's a perversion, Atilla, it's a particular style of art, which has certain connotations, but I think most folk are so aware of the connotations now, that they and the art cannot be separated.
Cheers, Sue (M)
