Title: czech glass concave lens vase, on odd colour combo - ID = Rosice 959
Post by: jonchellycain on August 17, 2009, 12:19:00 PM
Hi there
picked this vase up yesterday i believe it to be a Frantisek Peceny concave lense vase (page 68 in Marcus's sklo union). Just under 20cms tall, 14cms in diameter.
Ive only ever seen these in clear colourless glass before, but wouldnt have found it hard to believe they are colour.
 what is confusing me a touch is this one is 2 colours mixed together!! peach and a frankly quite horrible green colour, its very odd as there are not really any lines or uniformity to the colour the seem to just blur together hodge podge, but if you hold it up to the light and look through the base you can see layers on each colour seperatly one on top of the other. It is then cased in clear glass.
anybody know anything about this one??
many thanks
michelle

This piece comes from Sklo Union - Rosice, 1956 - pattern no 959/20. Designer unknown to me.
See CGR 1957/9

Designer unknown in Marcus' CD database as well, but vase is shown there in three sizes: 20cm, 25cm, and 30cm tall, all same pattern number, dated as Jindrich says, 1956.

AHHH I see what i did i was looking through the designers and its on the next page to Peceny which is why i thought it was one of his pieces... i thought i was going completely mad for a second there.
thanks guys.
Is the colouring quite normal then?
