I had assumed that this was Czech, and would be an easy find for factory/designer... Chřibská, probably... Hospodka, perhaps... it'll be in a book somewhere... or online...

But I'm stumped.

It's 13cm tall, 19cm wide, moulded foot, polished base, hotworked opalescent rim, and a lovely grid of lines of teeny-tiny bubbles that terminate in much bigger bubbles.

Any pointers in the right direction gratefully received.

However only a few of the 30 had the resources for pressed glass, and these pieces seem to date from a period when most of the smaller Belgian factories were already struggling or dead.
If they were really made in Belgium then they would look more like Luxval?! or something else that we would recognise by colour, press-quality, hand finising. seams, etc.


This is exactly what I was trying to say … from what I understand, they were not made in Belgium, they didn't see Belgian soil until they were imported.

The quality and date (and a possible explanation for the fake mark) might be Preciosa? They -see wikipedia - (and others) would also have been prepared to copy the (VSL) mark 'Fait en Belgique' from an example and make a new base plate. They probably made a spelling error when casting the 'BELGE' base plates LOL! and being part of the state in the East they were not likely to worry about copyright law either!
Of course they/whoever will (also) have been trying to avoid duties and tariffs etc. by this little deception.

I don't know about Kralik, but the "neat little bevel" on the edge of the rim is called an arris.
I found that word in the glass-lexicon. It stuck in my head.

Glass / Re: Need help identifying vase: possible Venini?

Well done.  ;D
It really is worth getting hold of certain really good, but damaged pieces. They're the only way some of us can afford the best. Lots of them can still display very well, but the best bit is being able to study and feel them properly. :)

Glass / Re: Mystery scenic vase. signed but don't know what to make of the siggy

Not that I can find an association with glassware but "Swem" is   a surname.

The only thing I know about the marks 'Belge' and 'Fait en Belgique' is that they were marks to avoid import taxes. Several models from Inwald, Walter and Brockwitz  etc can be found, as you know, with these marks. By marking them at the place of manufacture, there were no taxes to be paid once they were imported and it was a clever way to avoid them....something to do with law and legislation. The marks mentioned are very often attributed to Scailmont but there were 35 factories just in Wallonia at the time, so it's difficult to pinpoint the importer.

The only way is through catalogues I guess, I haven't got anything mentioned in books and I have been looking for some  time now to find an answer to that question.
