Description

Czech Sklo Union glass vase, made in green pressed glass.

This stunning item was designed by Vaclav Hanus for the Rudolfova glassworks in Czechoslovakia in the 1950's.

Pattern no 12992 designed and produced from 1957.

It is referenced on page 76 of Mark Hill's book 'High Sklo Low Sklo' where it states:

"With its curving rim and moulded lozenges, this vase is also often mistaken as having been produced during the Art Deco period. Unlike most pressed glass from before it, it does not mimic cut glass, and is closer in style to the ideas behind Lalique's designs. Its curving form is also reminiscent of a stylised flower bud, with organic forms recurring in many of Hanus' designs, however stylised. Originally designed for the Desna glassworks, it was produced by Rudolfova from 1957 until the late 1980s. It is usually found in strong or vibrant colours, such as this blue and a more common deep green."

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

The vase is:

25cm (10 inches) high;
13cm (5 inches) wide;
and weighs 1.9 kg (4 pounds).

It is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks, chips, scratches or bruises. There are some fleabites around the base commensurate with age.

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

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.

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.
