murano / czech no.2
« on: August 15, 2015, 08:47:13 PM »
Hello,

I recently bought a small oddment of a 20th century glass collection as I wanted one of the paperweights among it to add to my collection of rare British paperweights.

I am finding it very difficult to research a few of the items in the collection, as I have found the same objects to be attributed to several different makers / nationalities, mostly czech or murano and I am unsure which to believe and it has been difficult to find a definitive answer.

I am hoping there will be some assured expertise here to help me to identify these vases with more certainty.

Hi, your basket is Czech, from Chribska glassworks and likely designed by Josef Hospodka.
