Prachen glass vase??
« on: February 08, 2019, 01:20:06 PM »
Hello.
Purchased this piece with some Mdina thinking it might be Prachen glass but I have never owned or handled any pieces from that glassworks.
Could someone please advise if it is a piece of Prachen and who designed it.
Beautiful green that does not fluoresce under black light with blue tinted prunts.Measures 24.5cm and carries a full polished base.
All info greatly appreciated.

Yes to Prachen and I think the designer is Josef Hospodka but you will need to confirm that. A search of this board will give you the answer.
