Just a stunning piece of retro Czech glass:) Bowl measures 9" in diameter and 6" in height.
The Lusatian Mountain region has been known for their superior glass making for more than 700 years. Chribska glass is one of the few glassworks that was still in existence until just recently.
This striking organic sculpture art glass bowl has all the indicators of being a Josef Hospodka piece (there are no visible markings). Josef Hospodka was one of Chribska's chief designers during the 1950's.
While this bowl is in beautiful condition - there are no cracks or scratches - it does have a 5mm(3/16") chip off of the one end of a underlying "tendril" - This is not a noticeable flaw in any way and you literally have to spin the bowl repeatedly, while running your finger over it (I recommend doing this carefully:)), to find it - but a flaw is a flaw and I have priced it accordingly. Pics above show all sides and angles of the bowl...please remember to double click for close up view:)
