Original Mid – Century Czech / Bohemian Optical Lens Glass Vase designed by Rudolf Schrotter of Rosice Glass Works, Sklo Union Glass, Czech Republic.
Vase style documented as pattern number 914. This style of art glass became very popular in the 1950’s and Sklo Union Glass produced the # 914, (also called Bullet Vase) in a variety of colors. The glass was formed in a manner that creates a beautiful optical illusion, lines and curves blending and separating, giving it movement and life.
Color is beautiful – deep, rich aqua blue and highly sought after. Vase stands 7 1/2 inches tall, 2 1/2 inch wide base, mid point bullet shape, narrows to 3 inches wide at the rim. Good condition, one small nick on side of vase, does not take away from the beauty of the piece.
