    The 'Nemo' in the title was the name given to a design by Max Kannegiesser. It won first place in a glass design competition in Czechoslovakia in 1963. When it was manufactured and marketed it was a runaway success, selling 40,000 pieces in its first year. You can see two examples of the original 'Nemo' in image one.

    Pleased with this, Borske Sklo tried to replicate the success of 'Nemo' by adding further examples to the range. All of them combined moulded optical effects with coloured lustres. All used the same colours and I did once own a different one.

    None of them achieved anywhere near the sales enjoyed by the original 'Nemo' this is a rare find.

    Today I posted this vase on the Facebook group 'Sklo Czech Glass' and asked if anyone knew anything about fake versions of this vase being produced.
    Jindrich Parik replied saying that this is original. He added that there are no fakes as such, though Crystalex, the original producer of Nemo, did produce some more of this design just a few years ago.

      Ahh, those clever Czechs!
      I haven't seen the "after Nemo" before Peggy; it's great glass.
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      This is the first one of this design I've ever come across, so it's probably going to be new to many, Karen.
    8. Ivonne Ivonne, 5 years ago
      The team of contrast but completed !
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Yes, Ivonne, and thank you so much!

      We have to be a little careful with these as they are being made at present or certainly sold at present albeit with very slight differences in the enamels used.
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you Ian, food for thought!

      I love all three of these Peggy! The multicolored polka dots are so much fun :-) Your "after Nemo" piece however, holds its own against the other two, and I actually like it more. The horizontal ribs play very nicely against the colorful vertical stripes, and then the lustre finish... Beautiful!

      Thank you, Rick, I find your comment pleasing. Before finding this I'd only ever read a description of it in a book. but I like it more and more.
