These are a Beautiful Pair of Chribska Glassworks blown glass vases, Sklo Union, Czechoslovakia circa 1960’s.
A Stunning ‘off-hand’ design by Josef Hospodka, one of the leading designers of Czech glass, his sculptural pieces were inspired by developments in Murano and Scandinavia. The organic form, resembling a cat’s head could be used as a vase. In a double graduated coloured cased glass, similar to the Murano ‘Sommerso’ technique.
The greenish yellow and pinky red colours are bright and vibrant, and combined with the curved form, catch the light beautifully.
Would make a Great addition to any collection of Sklo, Czech or European Art Glass, and would complement any retro, vintage, mid century modern, 60’s, 70’s styled interior.
In Excellent Condition, a couple of tiny light scratches not noticeable on display.
Measuring 25 x 14 x 10cm / 10 x 5.5 x 4in.
These are a Beautiful Pair of Aseda Glasbruk Swedish Art Glass ‘Jack in the Pulpit’ / Bone vases circa 1960’s.
A Stunning retro mid century design, the Elegant Organic form resembling the ‘Jack in the Pulpit’ hooded woodland flower.
The Ruby Red long slender stems flare out to the curved hooded rims, they sit on clear glass feet filled with ‘controlled bubbles’. The form and glassblowing techniques used are very similar to Whitefriars and Murano glass, which these are commonly mistaken for.
Great Vintage Scandinavian design, that is very reminiscent of styles of the era. The difference in height and shapes of the rims of the pair only adds to their organic natural freeform charm.
Would make a Fantastic addition to any collection of Scandinavian / European / Art Glass and would complement any retro, vintage, mid century, sixties, Nordic or contemporary interior.
In Great Condition, just the usual age related marks and small fleabites on the bases, nothing visible on display or to detract.
Measuring 18 x 5.5 x 5.5cm / 7 x 2.25 x 2.25in.
