This striking glass vase looks amazing in direct sunlight or under a strong light. The swirling pattern of heavy green and amber glass is simply beautiful. This piece is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. It stands about 15cm high and has a diameter of roughly 15cm at it's widest.
While we do not know exactly who designed this piece, we believe it is from one of the Czech glass factories. Like the better known glassworks of Murano, the Czech glassworks have been making beautiful quality glass for centuries. With the rise of the Iron Curtain following World War II, knowledge of "Bohemian Glass" as it was previously called, declined. However, because Communist authorities did not see glass design as a form of artistic expression that needed to be controlled, many great glass designers were allowed to continue their work unhampered. Following the formation of the Czech Republic in 1993, more and more has become known about these designers and their beautiful work. And, appreciation of this work is growing quickly.
