Czech Bohemian Glass Wine Goblets
« on: December 14, 2019, 03:37:12 PM »
These wine glasses/goblets have label stickers on foot; however, I'm always confused about identifying when a particular Czech Bohemian Glass was made. The gold decoration appears to be etched? embossed? onto the glass with fine needle point variations.

7" H - Bowl 3" W at widest point. Wgt. 8 ounces.

Would like to know the timeframe/years the glasses may have been produced and if there's a better description for them than above. Label stickers show "Bohemian Crystal, Made in Czechoslovakia."

Thanks much, in advance, for any input.

Carole

Your label appears to match the one shown here https://www.yobunny.org.uk/glassgallery/displayimage.php?pos=-13677 which according to the late Marcus Newhall is "A Glassexport label as used during the 1960s and 1970s."

I think you could find lots of identical ones in red glass.  Blue was less common.+

To further confirm the date period suggested above, the country identification on the label is Czechoslovakia which would put the latest date to 1992 and earliest 1945. However, given the style - especially the shade of blue and gold enamel - the date 1960s/70s seems most reasonable. Although I can't see the sticker, its format appears very suggestive of that era.

As an aside, I do not think that these are wine goblets given the long stem and constrained bowl. however, I would not be dogmatic on that point.

These used to be Known as Hock Glasses.  I have a set of 6 in blue glass (see photo - that are what yours will be made of by the way.).  I also have a set of 6 Stuart Crystal From the late 80s - clear crystal but similar design (see a second photo).  The third photo is an engraved Bohemia Crystal Hock.
