Description

Czech Sklo Union glass vase, made in light blue pressed glass. This flower vase is a perfect table centerpiece for your home or wedding.

This stunning ice blue glass vase was designed by Vaclav Hanus for the Rudolfova Huť glassworks in Czechoslovakia in the 1950's.

It is pattern number 12995 from 1958.

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

The pale blue vase is:

12cm (5 inches) high;
9cm (3.5 inches) wide;
7cm (3 inches) deep;
and weighs 600g (1.5 pounds).

It has a stunning triangular design with well defined corner fluting and the classic Sklo Union 'birdbath' base and machine-cut rim.

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches or bruises. There are a few very small fleabites around the base but these are not visible unless turned upside down and inspected closely.

As with the majority of Sklo Union glass it is constructed from pressed sodium potash glass.

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

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 Rudolfova Huť glassworks, which was part of the Sklo Union group. Sklo Union was established in 1965 during the reorganisation of the Czech glassworks industry. Other factories in the alliance included Heřmanova Huť , Rosice, Nemsova and Libochovice.

Vaclav Hanus designed this stunning piece. After leaving the Technology and Design of Pressed Glass Vaclav joined Skloexport, where he designed many pieces of pressed glass. Vaclav was part of a select group of glass designers whose pieces are very much sought after.

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.
