I tend to agree, but have mailed Marcus anyway for his opinion.

That will be the one that I'm talking about.
Thanks for the nudge, David.
Regards,
Marcus

I've just got my hands on Andy McConnell's "Miller's 20th Century Glass" 2006.

A grey-green version of the subject of this thread is identified by him as by Rudolf Jurnikl, "designed for Rosice/Moravia National Glass Company, 1962".  It's pictured together with the finned bowl, hobnail vases and cog glass designs shown on Marcus's site.

Hi,
It might be worth e-mailing Andy McConnell, to ask where this is attributed, and who by. I am very sceptical of that attribution, and without a documented source, feel that this remains, very unsafe and unconvincing.
Regards,
Marcus

Thanks, Marcus.
Am away from home at the mo', but if I can find his address somewhere, I'll do just that.

Have sent a mail to Andy, asking for clarification.  Here's hoping...

Hi Chris,
Any feed-back on this yet?
Another has appeared on eBay, in a non-Sklo Union colour, again with an Andy McConnell attribution.
I think I know which Jurnikl vase from Rosice, 1962, this is being confused with, and the pattern is somewhat similar, but that is about as close as it gets.
Regards,
Marcus

Hi Marcus,

No, not a word - as of this morning.  The colours have me very curious.  Don't seem able to match the  shades of burnt amber, grey/green and blue with anyone else at present.

I have another couple of items to upload that may be by "your lads" - a chunky green vase and a possible Boule dish (this also features in the McConnell Miller's book, but I'm not sure...).  I'll try and get them up today.

Later,
Chris

Hi Chris,
I have spoken to Andy this morning. I know that even with Andy, the jury is still out on this one.
The colours are the key here I feel, but the grey/green and the blue do not appear to match other known Rosice items of that period, and this particular vase clearly is not a 984, which is what I think it is being mistaken for. Anyone have a 914 "Lens" (inadequately described as "Bullet") vase by Schrotter in these two colours?
Regards,
Marcus
