Glass / Re: Coronation? Glass info Skip or not?!

That would be a logical conclusion and a good reason for the holes in it.

Ignoring the decor ... potpourri holder?

While it looks like something from a trinket set at first, could the religious symbols all over it mean it might be a container for communion wafers?

Your bowl is actually older than I thought, model 1402 design HF996 - Hubert Fouarge for the 1930 catalogue. Again, perfectly acceptable that it isn't signed, if it was, it should have the little round acid mark for this period. Hope this all helps.

Thankyou Anne, I'm glad you say not to put it back in the skip as I'd feel a bit silly if it was modern junk!
It doesn't appear to have any remnants of fabric but I can see what you mean. If it did it's long gone now.
I did try with the photos but was struggling with the image size error note which wanted me to take them from the far end of the kitchen!. Hence the quality isn't good. So I posted and then went and took some more. No idea how I duplicated it on the second pic!.

I guess the salad bowl, model number 1402, is more recent but I can't find it that quickly ... I'll have a look.

Estimations are not given here, but if you have a look on the net you should be able to get an idea, don't get your hopes up though (verwacht niet teveel).

Hi Anne,

Many thanks for your reply, it is very helpful and interesting.

How much is it worth you think?

We also have a bigger salad bowl. (see picture)

Is it from the same collection?

Hallo Meld en welkom,

Yes your bowls are made by VSL, listed in the 1908 catalogue as 'Rince-Bouche' or a bowl to rinse your mouth at the dinner table.

I've always wondered though, if you're having dinner and decide to do this with the contents of the bowl, water i presume ...then what? Imagine yourself being invited and ending up with your mouth full of water  :D ... I guess we all know what question's coming next  :-[

I can see them being used as finger bowls too and it's perfectly normal that they're not signed, I would actually have doubts if they were signed because that would mean somebody added a signature.

Below the image of the 1908 catalogue.

Hi zedsi,

As fontanazul has mentioned, your beautiful vase is indeed Skrdlovice, designed by Ladislav Palecek in 1983 as pattern number 8318. The numer which comes after the slash (in this case, 8318/30) is the size in cm.

It was produced for a number of years in a variety of colors, including brown, green (or a combination of both), blue, and pink (among other combinations).  You can see more on the Beranek sro website on page 5 in 'vases': http://www.refinex.cz/bg/catalogue/default.aspx?lang=EN
