Additional Information :

Designed by Rudolf Beránek in 1969, this appears in the Skrdlovice factory pattern book as pattern number 6913. It follows a range of vases and sculptural forms in organic, asymmetric, and biomorphic forms designed around 1960 by Emanuel Beránek, Rudolf’s uncle and the founder of the Skrdlovice company.

The form is typical of 1950s and early 1960s designs in Czechoslovakia, and indeed Scandinavia. Appearing as it did nearly a decade after this trend, sales quantities were not large, making examples rare today. The Skrdlovice pattern book shows that only 1,200 examples would be made in three sizes (this is the medium size), but it is unknown if production ever reached the intended target

As well as echoing 1950s forms, the medium of glass is explored in this design - here it appears almost like flowing water. The undulations, waves and ripples on each are unique, and this is an excellent example. The vase also unusually bears its original factory gold foil and paper label.
