This beautiful little vase is by Harrochov Czechoslavakia, and is from their Harrtil range.
The concept for Harrtil was designed by Milos Pulpitel, technical director, at Harrachov in 1955. Similar in some ways to the Venetian merletto glass, this range used glass netting in the glass to give the lattice effect.
This vase would date to the late 50s or 60s, and the form was probably a design by Milan Metelak.
Made from a lovely azure glass with clear casing, it looks like the netting has been trapped between the blue and clear. The netting has been laid and manipulated in such a way that it flows with the shape of the three folded points. Clear polished base.
