Svoboda Karlov vase
« on: August 17, 2006, 07:07:56 PM »
I bought this the other day, it's 7.5" high with a Svoboda Karlov/hand made/Czech Republic sticker.

I can't work out how it's made...the blue/clear areas are slightly ridged, and it's encapsulated at the base in a verdant green colour.  I can't find out any information on this company...so far.  I'm not selling this, I'm enjoying it too much at present!

Does anyone have a snippet of information about this company?

No information but it's a lovely bit of glass, I'd enjoy that as well, by the way love your Nemtoi vases where did you find them.

Thanks Paul.  :D  My Nemtoi vases were bought for me as a present (I chose them though) about 9 years ago, when Nemtoi was *unknown*. I think my ones are possibly unique, and when I chose them there was about 30 in different styles to choose from in a tiny gallery in my home town, Tenterden.  :D  :D   One of the best presents my ex-husband ever bought me.  :wink:

Forgive me for being dim Ivo  :oops:   I found items about Jaroslav Svoboda, but not Karlov and I wondered what the connection was?  Is it a family thing?

Appears to be Svoboda, new era production.
After leaving Skrdlovice, where he had been director, to take up the professorial chair once held by Libensky, at VSUP, Svoboda was rapidly replaced, in the aftermath of the "Velvet Revolution". He then started his own company, Jaroslav Svoboda Sklo, in Karlov, less than a mile from the Beranek's Skrdlovice works.

It's ok, but not, imho, a piece for the future.

Regards,

Marcus
