Title: Lucky me... a Vizner 13139 vase for my collection
Post by: Anik R on May 15, 2011, 07:01:25 AM
I had a lucky morning at the market. I came home with a Frantisek Vizner 13139 vase for my collection.  I'm so very pleased.  The vase is heavy, solid and masculine...  The perfect piece of glass.  ;D

:hiclp: Congratulations! And what a beautiful colour! (I have just a blue one ;D)
Isn't this a great design?

Thank you!  :kissy:
The amethyst one´s still from my pre-GMB time (aka the dark age). It´s a flea market find and has
two tiny damages, but nevertheless I love it a lot. It kind of reminds me to trust my instincts: I bought
it on an afternoon - nobody else had considered to buy it until then, not even for just 1€. Only some
time after I joined here, I had this ´Aha´-feeling, when I recognised what it was.
The green one is quite new here and was a lucky buy-it-now on you-know-where.  :)

I will not challenge you with pieces from my collection :-)

The another issue. When you will take a look at this vase from proper viewpoint you will recognise the women siluethe. My wife Sonia had seen it just when I brought this piece home first time.
We have asked Frantisek and he answered:

"for sure, girl, we were young".

He designed this piece at academy, he was 24.

Jindrich, thank you for the additional information... it's fascinating.  I also suppose stranger things have been seen in glass.

So how many 13139 vases have you got?  I think the rest of the world has a hard time finding any because you (and px) probably have most of them...  ;D


Dirk, my amber one isn't in 100% perfect condition either...  there is a small knick near the top edge, a long but slim air bubble in the fold, a 5mm fault going horizontally through the body, and a few chips to the base.  But nothing which is terribly disappointing.  When I saw it from a distance at the market yesterday, I couldn't contain my excitement.  It was placed right beside the Brabec vase I posted in another thread.  I don't have a poker face, so I just paid what the seller (a young Slovak) was asking -- 25 PLN (about 6 Euro) per piece.  I came home feeling like a hero.   :D
