  1. Beautiful doggy and beautiful child. Wishing all of you the very best.
  2. Undoubtedly 1950s Skrdlovice. Lovely piece! If you wish to find the specific designer and year (and have plenty of patience), you can access the pattern books here: https://www.vcm.cz/vystavy-a-...
  3. Wow, that is gorgeous!
  4. What a wonderful find! The vase is indeed Skrdlovice, designed in 1955 by Emanuel Beranek as pattern 5531. :)
  5. Very nice, but the clear glass vase isn't quite mid-century. It was designed in 1965 by Frantisek Vizner and produced by Hermanova as pattern 20082 :)
  6. Wonderful... it reminds me of a frog :)
  7. Beautiful bowl and an outstanding size! Absolutely lovely.
  8. The vase is 100% not Czech (wrong base finish for Czech glass of this type, especially from Skrdlovice, and certainly not a Skrdlovice pattern)... it is Japanese though I know too little about Japane...
  9. Great piece... this conical shape was designed in 1974 for Skrdlovice as pattern 7406. As the label on your piece shows, it was also produced more recently by Beranek glassworks (same pattern number...
  10. She's beautiful... absolutely love it.
  11. Really lovely vase, but not Czech. It's Japanese :)
  12. Really great piece! I would think Vencalek from 1993 is correct though I don't know what the pattern number for an apple is. A beautiful little mystery :)
  13. Very pretty... made in China for Teleflora (the flower company). A floral arrangement in it had to look lovely.
  14. How terribly sad. I just don't know what else to say. (They had a beautiful collection, though... I especially love the owls.)
  15. Wow, that's gorgeous!
  16. Gosh, that's beautiful! What a wonderful find.
  17. Very pretty. It's Chinese... produced for Fifth Avenue Crystal.
  18. Wow... what a wonderful collection!
  19. I think she's wonderful! A gal with attitude :D Great find.
  20. Lovely... I think likely by a Canadian maker, like EDAG.
  21. Thank you for the extra photos... I'd say the platter is indeed mid-century Skrdlovice, but I am unsure of the designer and pattern number. A super find though!
  22. It certainly does look like a Jan Broz design for Skrdlovice... the lobe placement is very much like pattern 5351 from 1953, however, the description in the pattern books calls the bowl "3-sided" -- ...
  23. Ah, now I know where I got the information about ZBS colours from... Marcus Newhall posted them on the Glass Messages board (GMB) back in 2009. :)
  24. Hi there… just a small clarification. Sklo Union was an organisation which consolidated the pressed glass factories (such as Rosice, Rudolfova, Hermanova and Libochovice) in Czechoslovakia (excludi...
  25. My pleasure... it's a nicely made vase and an attractive piece, which is why I think it's often mistakenly attributed to Murano or others. :)
  26. Hi there... though it's a nice vase, it's not from Murano (or from Canada, as the one in the Etsy link would suggest -- that seller had been advised by a number of Chalet glass collectors that the la...
  27. In my notes, I have a list of ZBS colours -- they come from a credible source, though for the life of me, I don't know who/what that source was. For interest, I'll add them here: 10000 Crystal (un...
  28. Lovely piece. Designed by Zdenek Nemecek for Crystalex (Czechoslovakia).
  29. Hi there... don't know about the candleholder, but the small vase is likely from ZBS glassworks (Czechoslovakia), with the design (rightly or wrongly) attributed to Miloslav Klinger.
  30. Tragic to lose everything in a fire :(
  31. Love this medicine bear, its shape, simplicity... beautiful find.
  32. Love this drawing. Wonderful find!
  33. Oooooo love, love, love them!
  34. Such a beautiful piece... absolutely wonderful.
  35. 'White Cristal" headquarters is situated over 600km away from Murano, hence the label says "in the technique of" Murano, and not Murano-made.
  36. Hi there... you can find your vase in the 1975 Warmensteinach catalog, available for viewing on www.glas-musterbuch.de :)
  37. Hello and welcome to Collectors Weekly. I think you might find this post of interest: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/179666-knock-off-murano-white-cristal-vase-han All the best.
  38. Wow, at 13 1/4" that's a substantial piece of glass! Lovely!
  39. If you go to https://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/ and click on 'vasen' and then scroll down to "Böhmen Tschechoslovakei" you will find it under "Libochovice" :)
  40. Beautiful. I believe it is Czechoslovakian rather than French.
  41. Wow! I've never seen anything like it... Wonderful.
  42. It's lovely!
  43. The Skrdlovice book refers to the I=I inscription... it can be found on some 1950s Skrdlovice pieces, though there is no definitive answer why :)
  44. It's a great book and a very interesting read -- I highly recommend it! I just noticed your vase has got the mysterious I=I inscribed into the base. Fascinating.
  45. Hi artfoot :) The 5988 was made in a variety of sizes. I had one as small as 16cm and one as big as 30-something cm (and plenty of in-between sizes). You can find them is a variety of colorways, ...
  46. Beautiful, but not Chribska... It's Skrdlovice, designed by Jan Beranek in 1959 as pattern 5988 in the most desirable colorway (often referred to as 'red core'). Really, really wonderful piece. :)
  47. Love the squirrel photo!
  48. Ooo lovely... It's Czechoslovakian, designed by Rudolf Jurnikl in 1962 and produced by Rudolfova Hut as pattern number 13154 :)
  49. Beautiful work and really special piece.
  50. Oh, they're great! What a wonderful find.
