I am speaking about my MCM Czech glass collection, that I assembled last year within a few months, and my recent decision to clean these large heavy vases, giving them back their highly lustrous and optical punch they had when new.
This pair of amethyst vases was made by Frantisek Vizner, for Rosice. A highly skilled Czech glass craftsman, who experimented and had a unique vision in a wide range of styles during many decades. He is a favorite of the UK Mark Hill, publisher, collector and authority on this subject, and Jindrich Parish, a notable Czech collector who is very active and generous with his own knowledge and time.
The phenomenon I mention is one that happens to me regularly, as I switch my focus back and forth between various time periods, cultures, and collectible items.
