Description

For sale is a Chribska glassworks pink glass vase cased in colourless glass designed by Josef Hospodka in 1955.

It is referenced on page 37 of Mark Hill's book 'High Sklo Low Sklo' where it states "This off-hand' lobed vase was part of a collection designed by Hospodka in 1955 which grew to be enormously commercially successful. Produced in a variety of sizes with triple or double graduated colours, this design was still available in 1989, and possibly later. Although the lobes on the body can differ in size, form and number, the flared rim always has three lobes and there is always a colourless foot. The colours on this particular example change depending on the light and how it is viewed. Later colour combinations tend to be brasher than earlier ones."

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The item is:

24.5cm (9.6 inches) high;
11cm (4.3 inches) wide;
9.5cm (3.7 inches) deep;
and weighs 1.2kg (2.6 pounds).

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches or bruises.

--------------------------------------

A little history about the item (for those who are interested!)

During the communist occupation of Czechoslovakia a huge array of beautiful and innovative pieces were designed and produced. Due to the closed door nature of communism, many of these pieces are only now being discovered and documented.

The vase being sold here is from the Chribska glassworks, which was founded in the early 1400s and merged with the Borske Sklo company in 1950s.

Josef Hospodka designed the piece and was the head designer during the 1950s and 60s. Josef attended the State School for Graphic Arts in Prague during the beginning of the second world war. After an illustrious career Josef became head designer at Chribska (Borske Sklo) and later director of the whole company.
