Josef Hoffmann - Moser (...?..)
« on: July 02, 2019, 04:11:17 PM »
This design is attributed to Josef Hoffmann for Moser (1930's.).
But I have the idea that this model was (copied?) Produced later by other factories (I think I remember ZBS ... among others).
I have this The quality is good but the color does not seem very Moser.
What can be?

that feeds my suspicions but does not clarify them ...

Desna could still be making them, not sure where the attribution comes from with this example:

Thanks John.
 I have searched for Desná. Today linked to the Preciosa / Ornela brands and with a history that goes back to the 19th century Riedel.
I see that they currently produce classic models of "Ingrid" Schlevogt /  Heninrich Hoffmann (1930's) and other classics of the 50-60's (Václav Plátek / Václav Hanuš ...).
But I have not found references to the model we are dealing with. We will have to keep looking.

Stunning colour of vase though.  That colour is quite special.  It might be a clue to the maker?
