Description

Sculpture glass basket designed by Frantisek Zemek for the Mstisov glassworks in 1950's / 1960's. It is made in blue. pink. green, amber and clear glass and is part of his 'Rhapsody' range. A truly stunning piece!

It is referenced in Mark Hill's book 'Hi Sklo, Low Sklo' on page 66-67.

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

The item is:

19.5cm (7.5 inches) high;
15cm (6 inches) wide;
9cm (3.5 inches) deep;
and weighs approx 600g (1.3 pounds).

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or bruises. There is a light surface scratch but it is barely visible.

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

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 basket being sold here is from the Mstisov glassworks, which was founded in the early 1868, originally to produce glass for jewelry.

Frantisek Zemek designed the piece and was the head designer during the 1950s and 60s. The piece being sold here is from one of his best known ranges - the 'Rhapsody' range. He is also very well known for his 'Romana' range, which is equally as spectacular.

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.
