This vase is 6.5" high and weighs in at 2 lbs 10 ounces. I was pretty sure that a few months ago I saw a vase very similar to this one offered as Skrdlovice, but I couldn't find an image of it when I spotted this vase. The seller did not do themselves any favors with their auction images. They were blurry, with poor resolution, in very bright light which washed the colors and didn't show the blue in the bottom at all. The vase was also very dirty and dusty and just described as a "heavy vase". I was very surprised at how much more attractive it was when I received it. I paid under $20 for it, including shipping.
Anik identified this vase as being from a design made by Emanuel Beranek in 1955. Thanks Anik!
