Czech Sklo Union Glass


Unlike Whitefriars and Scandinavian glass, relatively little is known about much of the post war Czech pressed glass that is becoming sought after by retro collectors. Much of this was produced by Sklo Union and an exhibition at Kings Lynn Arts Centre later this year with a catalogue by Mark Hill will aim to draw attention to this currently under-documented area of collecting.

Marcus Newhall also has a site which identifies the designers of some of these pieces and provides a background on Czech post war glass

My own collection includes this brilliant blue 1950s ‘Bullet’ vase by Rudolf Schrotter and a candlestick by Vladislav Urban.
