Title: Libochovice uranium dressing table set. = pattern 1760
Post by: kimanded on September 04, 2009, 11:31:34 PM
Hi

we bought this set a few weeks ago. we have now discovered with our newly purchased UV pen that it is uranium. we found the pattern in the catalogues at www.glas-musterbuch.de/Libochovice-circa-1925-1928
but we cannot find any other references or pictures on the net to this set. not even on ebay :-X. theres lots of info on bagley/sowerby/davidson etc but has anyone got info on this maker?

thanks

kim and ed

Nice early find that Kim.  :mrgreen:

The Libochovice glassworks in Czechoslovakia was created by Feigl and Morawetz in 1911, which became part of the state-controlled Sklo Union group after the Communist government took control of the country post WW2. 

The catalogue you found this set in dates from the mid/late 1920s, so your set (pattern 1760) would have been made by Feigl and Morawetz at the Libochovice glassworks.  The glassworks continued to make trinket sets even after becoming a part of the SU group but this set doesn't appear in the 1950s catalogue.

Libochovice are documented on the Glass Trinket Sets (http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=109&Itemid=49) website but I don't yet have any examples of this set so may I add your photos of it please?

Source: Info about the Libochovice glassworks is taken from Sklo Union Art Before Industry: 20th Century Czech Pressed Glass, by Marcus Newhall (published Nov 2008), which includes the later 1950s catalogue on the accompanying CD. Marcus was also instrumental in obtaining the catalogue which is shown on Pamela's Glas-Musterbuch (http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Libochovice-1925-1928.118.0.html) website.

Definitely a good find for £2.99 Kim!  :)  Good to see the uranium glass set as I don't have any Libochovice pieces in uranium green yet. I'd be interested to know if Christine has seen this one before as she collects uranium glass especially. 

Re the pics, could you take pics of each piece separately for me please, and one of all the pieces together. Against a plain white background if possible as that will show the colour off best. Thank you. :)

Could you email me them directly please Kim? That way they can be larger than the board will allow. For my email address just click the wee envelope below my name to the left. Thanks again. :)

Don't know that I've actually got anything in that pattern, but I've definitely seen it. That little bit like three leaves rings a bell

hi Anne

we did think that something was not right with the emails so we are pleased to hear from you. we have other email addresses and will try to send pics to you shortly but just wondered if your system might think they were spam. so the address i will use is [email address deleted to protect you from spam harvesters].

hope it works  ::) and we will gladly sort out the blue set too. when its sorted we hope to sell the sets lol

No I think the bell means I've got or had a piece of the trinket set and that I can't find it

What fabulous sets! Am I right in saying then that the above sets would be called "Clifton" as per page 18b of the Catalogue in the above link?

This has helped me ID a ring holder I have in Clear in the same set.  :girlcheer:
