  1. 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 :)
  2. Very pretty... made in China for Teleflora (the flower company). A floral arrangement in it had to look lovely.
  3. How terribly sad. I just don't know what else to say. (They had a beautiful collection, though... I especially love the owls.)
  4. Wow, that's gorgeous!
  5. Gosh, that's beautiful! What a wonderful find.
  6. Very pretty. It's Chinese... produced for Fifth Avenue Crystal.
  7. Wow... what a wonderful collection!
  8. I think she's wonderful! A gal with attitude :D Great find.
  9. Lovely... I think likely by a Canadian maker, like EDAG.
  10. 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!
  11. 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" -- ...
  12. 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. :)
  13. 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...
  14. 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. :)
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Lovely piece. Designed by Zdenek Nemecek for Crystalex (Czechoslovakia).
  18. 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.
  19. Thank you for 'loving' welzebub, SEAN68 and hunterqlee. Much appreciated.
  20. Thank you for the 'loves' SEAN68, Sinnomore and hunterqlee. Appreciated!
  21. Tragic to lose everything in a fire :(
  22. Love this medicine bear, its shape, simplicity... beautiful find.
  23. Love this drawing. Wonderful find!
  24. Oooooo love, love, love them!
  25. Fantastic!
  26. Such a beautiful piece... absolutely wonderful.
  27. 'White Cristal" headquarters is situated over 600km away from Murano, hence the label says "in the technique of" Murano, and not Murano-made.
  28. Hi there... you can find your vase in the 1975 Warmensteinach catalog, available for viewing on www.glas-musterbuch.de :)
  29. 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.
  30. Wow, at 13 1/4" that's a substantial piece of glass! Lovely!
  31. 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" :)
  32. Beautiful. I believe it is Czechoslovakian rather than French.
  33. Wow! I've never seen anything like it... Wonderful.
  34. It's lovely!
  35. 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 :)
  36. 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.
  37. 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, ...
  38. 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. :)
  39. Love the squirrel photo!
  40. Ooo lovely... It's Czechoslovakian, designed by Rudolf Jurnikl in 1962 and produced by Rudolfova Hut as pattern number 13154 :)
  41. Beautiful work and really special piece.
  42. Thank you for taking the time to 'love' Manikin, Brunswick and Roycroftbooksfromme1. Much appreciated :)
  43. Oh, they're great! What a wonderful find.
  44. Thank you for 'loving' vetraio50, PhilDMorris, Vynil33rpm, fortapache, and Newfld. Newfld, thank you for your kind words... she is lovely! Name days in Poland used to have much more importanc...
  45. Wonderful words, Thomas.
  46. What a great piece! Absolutely love it :)
  47. It's absolutely lovely!
  48. Wonderful! May your new home bring you serenity, creativity, and all the goodness you need.
  49. Lovely little bowl. Because of the label, we know it was produced by Crystalex in 1992 or earlier (though I don't think much earlier... probably anytime between the 1980s and early 1990s.) Unfortu...
  50. Oh dear me, I'm so very sorry :(
