Description

This is an unusual, quite rare, Sklo Union clear pressed glass vase designed by Jiri Brabec.

It was produced by the Rosice glassworks in 1981 using a 4 part mold.

It is sometimes referred to as the 'boobies' vase due to its five rows of protrusions.

Pattern number 5226

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

The vase is:

23cm high;
7cm wide (at the rim);
6.5cm wide (at the base);
and weighs 1kg.

It has a classic Sklo Union "birdbath" base.

The item is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks, chips or bruises. There are some very very small scratches, mainly around the base, commensurate with age and are only visible on close inspection

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 Rosice 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 Rudolfova Huť , Heřmanova Huť, Nemsova and Libochovice.

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.
