Hi Everyone
                 been round the charity shops again today came home with four pieces of Glass, the first was this Blue Vase, with flute or ribs, dont know if im right in that description, this Vase stands 6ins high and a 3ins top opening it is fairly heavy, weighs 555grams. can any give me info whom made the vase and when please.

While i am posting now can i please ask if i am being a pest with all the posts i am doing but its the best way to get to know about glass as well of cause the few books i have bought, but you cant beat having a talk about the items to some one else can, so please do say so, if i am,

Hi Gilead,
Moderator I may be, dragon I am not... ;D ;D (OK, get in line anyone who disputes this....)
Yes, this is good, a fine piece of design, made at the Rosice factory of Sklo Union. Date of introduction @1960-61
These are known in un-coloured glass, :-* and: a non-uranium green, dark green, aubergine, amethyst, turquoise, sky-blue, cobalt, amber, citrine, and many daily variants.... and two sizes, little, 150 mm, big, 200mm.
A nice find.
Regards,
Marcus

I have not got round to correcting this, but this vase, Rosice pattern number 1032/150  is a  design by Jan Schmid, and neither of the two designers previously attributed to this vase, assumptions that have been made elsewhere, and wrongly used by me. Recently, I found papers which clarified the issue, tho the papers are capable of being wrong also.
Regards,
Marcus
