    THIS IS A HEAVY 7" TALL Crystal or glass mid century vase I picked up yesterday at one of garage sales. It has no signatures or stickers but the base is cut like a lot of my scandinavian glass/crystal collectibles and I liked its aesthetic also!

    Any help on identifying this vase would be incredibly appreciated!

      Hi! I think this is Czech. It comes in a variety of colours. Checko out "Sklo Union" on google images.
      Rosice - Frantisek Vizner 1962.

      "Rosice was founded in 1920 but closed in 1921. It was bought by Vaclav Hrdina in 1928, and began production again, only to close again in 1931. In 1934 it was bought by Bedrich Vrtal and began production for a third time, this time with success. In 1965, Rosice became part of the Sklo Union group. Designers at the factory include Jiri Brabec, Rudolf Jurnikl, Jan Schmid, Vladislav Urban, Frantisek Vizner, and Rudolf Schrotter. Production ceased in 1996."

      Not that marvellous. Not Rosice but Rudolfova. Sorry!
      "Rudolfova Hut Sklo Union glass - shown below is our current range of vases, bowls and other decorative vintage collectable glassware by Rudolfova Hut of Czechoslovakia.

      Rudolfova Hut was founded in 1906 by Josef Inwald, who already owned several glass factories. Rudolf Schrotter created several designs which began production in 1914. Other designers that worked for Rudolfova Hut include Frantisek Vizner, Rudolf Jurnikl, Adolf Matura, Vladislav Urban, and Vaclav Hanus. Rudolfova Hut soon became the largest producer of pressed glass in Czechoslovakia. In 1965, Rudolfova Hut became part of the Sklo Union group."

      Still it was Vizner. He died last year. Great loss!
      Amazing glass artist who worked for many factories in his career.

      Thank you so much! I came across Rudolfa when I found the exact piece so I knew what you meant.

      I now hope I am as lucky with figuring out my other glass pieces. This has been an incredible help!
