A stunning, heavy Czech
glass sculptural vase. In a stunning combination of amber glass encased in uranium green glass. Made by Skrdlovice
, designed by Maria Stahlikova
in 1955, pattern number 5568
. This piece is shown in the original Skrdlovice pattern book drawings, see last image (with kind permission, and copyright of Jindřich Pařík www.CzechGlassGuide.cz
). The small amounts of Uranium in the glass cause this vase to glow bright green in UV light.
Measures approx 9 inches tall by 2.25 inches in diameter at widest point.
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a miniscule fleabite to the base rim, and a tiny, very faint bruise mark on one side near the base, both shown in final pictures.
