I've been having these vases for some time now and I have a certain affection with them.They always bring to my mind the first spring flowers,which bloom when the snow is around.
The vases were produced when the post war damage made impossible normal life ,much less glass vases production.And yet E.Beranek's strength of talent and his imagination overcame all those difficulties and created something what is still desirable by glass collectors.

    WOW! Amazing pieces Ivonne!
    I can see the ice/earth/growth imagery so well. The scrolls on the side of the larger one are masterful.

    Thanks Traveller for the love .
    Thanks Karen for both,love and comment.I'm happy you can get a feel of snowy areas.It's not so easy,I guess,if you live in a warmer place:)

    Lovely pieces, Ivonne... I especially like the little one with the four 'petals'.

    Thanks,Anik,for your input.The petals seem to spill out from the foamy glass.

    Great pieces. I love early Beranek production, and have several pieces.
    Some of these can be tough to identify 100% because the line art drawings are pretty crude, and several designs have similar drawings. That being said, the tall piece appears to be 4674, which would be the 74th design in 1946. It should stand about 16 cm tall. The short example looks like it could possibly be shape 4679 from 1946 also. If it is, it should stand approx 8 cm tall. There are also a couple of 1945 designs that are similar to the small example, but the folded over pieces at the rim of the earlier pieces appear a little shorter than these do.

    Thanks welzebub for so detailed information.My vases are 7,5 cm and 15 cm tall.Is this a significant difference to attribute them or not to the designes you have mentioned?
  9. welzebub welzebub, 12 months ago
    You are certainly welcome..... Based on differences in pieces I own, I would not consider those dimension differences to be significant.

    Lovey, lovely vase Ivonne! It has all the elements that I love in a piece... great texture, contrasting colors, (which work so well together) and the applied riggaree ending in those attractive scroll handles.
