Title: Tall ribbed Amethyst vase- ID = Ząbowice Poland
Post by: yesvil on June 14, 2010, 07:02:11 PM
I'm sure this is quite a common one but I can't seem to be able to find it. Can anyone help?

Hi, you'll need to make the picture a bit bigger. As Christine says, make the longest side about 700 pixels or so, and that should give enough detail for us to see, and be small enough to load as well.

Sorry didn't realise I uploaded such a small picture.

I wish I could help you, but I just want to say I love it and I hope someone else can identify it. I'm tempted to think this sort of modernist pattern could be German (or Czech - but so many people here are knowledgeable about Czech glass that if nobody reacts, it probably isn't?), but at this point it's nothing more than speculation, sorry. But if would probably buy one if I saw it at a reasonable price...

Hi Max - It's ribbed horizontally on the outside and vertically on the inside.

Thanks astrid I like it too but I think I may have spent a little too much!

It reminds me of this one (in green, which is the same fabulous technique but very different design)

For me, that grey/amethystish colour says Polish although I'm not 100% about that.

Ah, if the quality is good, and you bought it for yourself, that shouldn't matter too much... a goodlooking piece is a goodlooking piece, even if it's produced, say, yesterday in China. If you want to sell it again, it's a different story of course...

Today I came across the same vase in yellow in a collector's album on Picasa, who had it classified under his 'Czech pressed glass' collection, though without attribution. Don't know if this person is a gmb regular, but perhaps you could contact him through  the album and ask him whether his classification is pure speculation or whether he knows something more about it.

This is the link:

Ah - that page is maintained by Jindrich's friend Dusan. Jindrich says "Please do not take all Dusan's attributions at Piccasa web as given true, sometimes he simply guess. But anyway, his huge collection is really challenge."

I wonder whether Jindrich can add more?

That's good to know, thanks Cathy. Guess we'll have to err on the side of caution here and assume he just thought it looked Czech. But it's a great collection to admire anyway, isn't it?

Hi all,

The vase is Polish and appears in the 1971 Ząbowice catalogue available for viewing  here. (https://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/archiv/pdf/pk-2013-3w-01-mb-zabko-1971-pressglas.pdf) (Scroll down to page 32of 36.)
