Feigl & Morawetz Libochovice no. 1917 w/ unknown Brass
« on: December 23, 2018, 07:42:30 PM »
Hello, have a look:

I think I've identified this piece as a Feigl & Morawetz Libochovice no. 1917, thanks in part to old posts on this forum. However I don't have access to Marcus Newhall's book so I'm wondering if anyone who does can tell me when it was made or anything else about it. The brass(?) is somewhat of a mystery as well because it's not present on any other pictures of this vase that I've found.

Thanks in advance.

I've seen similar brass collars and feet on both Libochovice and Reich pieces sold in the US. I've often suspected that they were added by an importer/ retailer as we don't tend to see them in Europe.

It can be hard to date Czech glass of this type as many patterns appear to have been in production for a long time.  The vase is shown in the pre- 1958 catalogue so was certainly in production in the 1950s. It seems many people date this design to the late thirties (understandable based on style and technique), but I don't recall any hard evidence for when the design was introduced.
