Help with Czech glass signature / studio on Contemporary Stemware
« on: September 20, 2020, 01:26:34 PM »
I picked up two pairs of these Modern glass stems in different sizes (goblet / cocktail).  They retain a "SKLENICKA" paper label and the engraved siggie "Design J.  ???"  Any help on the siggie would be very much appreciated.

Jiri Suhajek. Lucky, lucky you! ;D
Although I suspect it is his design rather than made by him directly. Worth finding out.

There's an image of his signature on an early goblet Greg posted, here.

I'll leave it to you to compare them. I'm no good at hand writing anaylsis. :-[

I have a jug by him.

I wonder if these came from the B.A.G. Vsetin (Check Sp?) partnership?

Yes they did - see link here for more information :)

 ;D
I've just remembered - I have a goblet I'd always thought was by Annette Meech at the RCA, but was talking with Mark Hill about it recently and he thinks it's by Jiri Suhajek. RCA.
I have found pics I can post and have just edited to do so.

RCA.  ;D Not marked. I've had it a long time and always loved it, especially the wonkiness.
I thought it might be Mdina when I bought it. It was that long ago.
Mark and I agree it's RCA. He knows  a lot more about Jiri Suhajek and what was going on there in the early days than I do - especially with just having written the section of the book on Sam Herman and spending time with him. jammy... gentleman.  ;)
