Beranek? purple bowl / vase

Post by lyndhurst44 on March 29th 2011, 7:24 pm

Hi,
I've had this bowl for over a year and thought it was by Murano. I price some old or glass items for a local Charity shop. Today I was asked to value a vase that I immediatly recognised as being a Bohemian Beranek Andromida vase. The charity shop intends listing it on eBay and I tried to set out the listing for them. On returning home I remembered my bowl and wondered if it could also be by Beranek. What do you guys and gals think. I've taken 2 quick photo's in fading light but I think you'll get the drift. The bowl is outer cased in blue with amethyst alternating rings. It was blown with a polished pontil mark.The bowl measures 6" tall and being round 6" diameter with a 3.25" opening.

Thanks,
Bryn

I might be wrong, as it's really not my area, but isn't the majority of Czech blown glass finished with a flat polished base?

It's a fun piece, though!

Good point you've made there Nic Embarrassed Then it's probably not Murano either then - Mmmmm! Back to the drawing board.

I have seen a few more of these in the last year or so Bryn, the general consensus (including from some Czech glass experts) is that they are likely from Murano.

Could it be Leerdam? Spotted a photo of an amethyst Leerdam gourd which reminded me of this vase.
