Title: Peceny ashtray?
Post by: Chris Harrison on October 06, 2006, 01:46:41 PM
Whilst rummaging through boxes of glass in my loft I came across this nice blue ashtray:

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-3555

I've just noticed that it appears almost identical in design to the Peceny compote set (Fig 3. at http://www.sklounion.com/SkloUnion/Sklo1.html).  

The base appears the same, and the bowl has 3 soft moulded lines that swirl up to each apex of the triangle.  I think the compote set items do, too.

The ashtray has a ridge at each apex (continuing the lines) in which a ciggy can be rested.
 
It's 150 mm at widest and 40 mm high.

Another one for Marcus, I suspect.

TIA
Chris

Chris,
You'll have to stop showing me all this stuff, or start selling it to me. :lol:
You are absolutely correct with your id.

Marcus

Hang on.  I don't think I've quite finished.  Got to get him really drooling first...  :-)

Having bought ok, last night, and brilliantly this am, I'll be fine, but broke.

Seriously, some good and interesting items you are finding. For example this piece. Who would have thought of a compote set with matching ashtray, hardly a popular choice now (too much ash in the fruit salad),  :roll: but then possibly a good line, as the ashtray generally was not sold with the set.

Regards,

Marcus

Hi,
One is ebay item number 280032294073, which was ok, (not a bargain) but needed, as the "Moravia" pattern, was a significant aspect of that years new designs.
The other, (images to follow on arrival), was a Vizner "Lens" jardiniere for not a lot.

I'm trying a delicate balancing act between finances and acquiring examples to use to illustrate the web-site, and finances and buying research materials on the other.

Regards,

Marcus

Marcus, is this pattern of any interest to you or is it too late/wrong production?

Co-incidentally I just sold three of those candlesticks Anne - nice aren't they?  They went (very cheaply) to a major collector.

They are super, Pip. I have three as well - although one is damaged (I bought an odd one and then found a pair: one was perfect but the damaged one had the label - useful for the gallery!) I haven't managed to pin them down age-wise yet though.

I think I may have a Feston dessert set. Is this if any interest? If so I will disturb the dust on the wardrobe

They look typically 1970's to me, that's what I ended up listing them as anyway - it'd be interesting to know for sure.

Hi,
Anne,
Thanks for the offer, but these are as far as I am aware, not Sklo Union, but Jablonecke Sklo products.
Christine, yes, I would be interested in the Feston items, and could you please e-mail me re boots ie Chelford at the end of the month.
Thanks and regards,
Marcus.

Pip, thanks for the date suggestion.

Marcus, no worries... I wasn't sure as they have the Bohemia Glass label with the stethoscope-sort of symbol that you use as your site background... http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-867. Was this label used by both Sklo Union and Jablonecke Sklo (and possibly by other firms as well?) I have a feeling I ought to know this but I don't... has it been mentioned on the board before?

Hi, Anne,
The label you show in the link, was used both by Glassexport(Skloexport) and Jablonex, to show place of origin, not factory. Some pieces are marked twice, with the Bohemia Glass label and also with factory label as well, so you can find pieces marked Bohemia Glass with a Sklo Union label, Bohemia Glass with a Bohemia Glassworks label (from Podebrady)etc.
Regards,
Marcus

Ah right, thanks Marcus. It's all beginning to make sense now.
