    I have this object by Emanuel Beranek, 1959, pattern 5902.

    It retains its gold sticker “Hand made Skrdlovice Czechoslovakia” on its foot.

    It is h. 23 cm. The blue fades to pink.

    Thanks to both Jindrich Parík and Robert Bevan-Jones for their help in identifying it and giving me the pattern number. Robert also mentioned that this was a piece done when Emanuel was retiring from the glassworks. I have been collecting Bohemian glass of various periods for many years now and I had not seen another like this Beranek before. I liked it initially because of its similarity to Timo Sarpaneva’s “Orkidea”.

    Just found out the name of this series of vases: 'Kollektion Blanka'. I was having a look through some copies of Glasrevue 1960. In an article in German: Ein Juengling von Sechsig Jahren" Dr Ivo Digrin refers to them as part of the 'Kollektion Blanka' of Emanuel Beranek.

      Thanks mon amie scandinavian_pieces. I'll have a go at getting the pink!
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 12 years ago
      I hope the pink is clearer now.
      The pink/blue combination is a trademark of Emanuel Beranek that I really like.
      How he did it?
      I have no idea.

      Fabulous design. Very sexy !
      You see it occasionally on Ebay Germany.
      Pieces with an intact Skrdlovice label are hard to find. Congrats !

      Hello, this appears to be alexandrite also known as neodymium glass. Have you tried moving it into different light sources to see if it changes colour?
    21. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      Many thanks ANIK & ROSIEGIRL.

      Indeed I have tried and it does not change.
      It is not a neodymium glass as such.
      It is a particular feature of Skrdlovice, that I find particularly attractive.
