Description

Stunning vintage Czech Zelezny Brod glass vase, made in Neodymium Alexandrite glass. Neodymium glass changes colour depending on the lighting conditions.

This beautifully shaped vase was designed by Miloslav Klinger for the Zelezny Brod glassworks in Czechoslovakia in the 1960's.

It is pictured on page 49 of Mark Hill's 'High Sklo Low Sklo'.

A similar vase is referenced in Miller's Collectables Handbook & Price Guide 2014-2015 on page 218 where it says "Alexandrite (or Neodymium) glass changes colour from a pale ice blue under fluorescent lighting to this colour [purple] under incandescent lighting. The presence and style of any engraved design affects value considerably. Modern, stylised designs like this [same vase but with a heron] are much more desirable than simple, naturalistic renderings of flowers." Value £100-£150

************************************************************************

The vase is:

27cm (10.5 inches) high;
12cm (4.5 inches) wide;
7cm (2.75 inches) deep;
and weighs 1.5kg (3.3 pounds).

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches or bruises. There are a couple of very small fleabites and age related marks on the base.

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

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 Zelezny Brod glassworks, which was also known as Železnobrodské Sklo (ZBS). It consisted of 9 factories in the town of Zelezny Brod, Czechoslovakia.

Miloslav Klinger designed the piece and is renowned for using this type of pulled glass design. He was one of the top designers at Zelezny Brod for over 40 years and designed hundreds of glass pieces, many in association with Josef Cvrcek and Frantisek Kyska.

We hope you found the information interesting and if you have anything to add, please let us know as we are always interested to learn more.
