I went to a market here in Sydney a few months ago and bought this Emanuel Beranek basket or kosik 5910. I paid $25 ( GBP 16, 18 Euros ) for it but was happy to get it. Baskets are not usually my thing. What I liked though was the subtle use of the colors and the double containers. There is a separate pink and a separate blue bubble container. It is that same pink and blue that caught my eye in an earlier posting on CW.
I went to the catalogues and found that it was 1959 and realized that maybe my earlier post of the Beranek vase was 5902 rather than 5869.
Just found out the name of this series of vases: 'Kollektion Blanka'. I was having a look through some copies of Glasrevue 1960. In an article in German: Ein Juengling von Sechsig Jahren", Dr Ivo Digrin refers to them as part of the 'Kollektion Blanka' of Emanuel Beranek.
