help identifying Czech glass bowl
« on: May 14, 2018, 03:16:53 PM »
This bowl is beautiful but a bit of a mystery. I am pretty sure it is Czech glass.

The bowl is 28 cm long to the points, 11.5 cm wide and 8.5 cm high.

It has pulled ribs below the points and on opposite sides an indented oval. This gives an amazing distribution of light and colour. The body colour is amber and this is citrine glass encased.

Not sure what else I can tell you but would be grateful for any information on designer, maker and date.

More information.

Purely by chance I have just been looking through the Beranek and Skrdlovice book (Bevan Jones and Jindrich Parik) and on page 43 the vase and bowl shown are the exact same colour as the mystery bowl. Described in the book as green and topas. Take a look. Don't know if it helps.

There's tons of information here: https://www.cs-sklo.cz/#
I would have a look through, but I am really busy today.  ;D
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Thank you for your input.

Given the green/topas colour I have spent a lot of  time today going through the on-line catalogues for Skrdlovice. There is one possibility, 1954 Jan Kotik number 54171, Jardiniera. The form is perhaps more fluid ( but that could be down to the drawing or the person producing the glass)  but it has the indented ovals and the overall shape is very similar.

Has anyone ever seen one or has information - please help.

Thank you for your post.

The photographs, in the article, are very interesting. The candle holder, minus the blue glass 'pots' for the candles looks just like my bowl, although my bowl is slightly less curvy around the rim, although I understand that every glassworker had the license to slightly vary the design.I have checked the Skrdlovice catalogue and the candle holder is cat. number 54170 so it seems very possible that 54171 is my bowl - wouldn't that be wonderful  :)

Not sure where to go from here to confirm our detective work.
