Glass From Our November 2016 Glass Fair

The images featured in this Preview Gallery illustrate examples of glass
that were offered for sale at our 13 November 2016 glass fair.

In the weeks leading up to our next fair we will update the gallery, adding photos of the glass that will be available for purchase on Sunday 7 May 2017.

To make it easier for collectors to view the type of glass they are interested in, the glass featured in the Preview Gallery has been placed into separate categories.


In Focus: Josef Hospodka Vase

Flower Vase: Designed by Josef by Hospodka for Prachen Glasswork (c. 1967-70)
Flower Vase: Designed by Josef by Hospodka for Prachen Glasswork
(c. 1967-70)

This flower vase was designed by Josef by Hospodka for Prachen Glasswork (Checkoslovakia).

Josef Hospodka began work at Parchen in 1969 after a highly creative period at Chribska. He built a reputation for himself through the hot-worked 'offhand' designs he produced.

Interestingly Joseph was assisted at Prachen by Frantisek Koudelka, who went on to become a notable designer in his own right.

Although Joseph was already known for his work with both coloured & transparent glass, this vase represented a departure for him: due to the combination of a mould-blown geometric form with applied & impressed motifs.

Please visit our In Focus page for more highlights from the 13 November National Glass Fair.
