Set of Six Exbor Glass Fish

Set of Six Exbor Glass Fish

3,400.00

A group of six Czech glass fish by Exbor . “...The concept for this range was devised in 1958, when Rozinek and Honzik saw fish sculptures created by Vera Liskova for Moser that were to be included in the World Exposition in Brussels. Rozinek, a keen angler, was a leading glassmaker at Novy Bor, whilst Honzik was a notable cutter. Forms are typically lively, with cut details including mouths and fins. Early examples shown in Czechoslovak Glass Review in 1959 have unusual decoration including internal bubbles or mottling, or faceted bodies. Although produced earlier, the range was first properly promoted in Czechoslovak glass review in 1965. At that time, it comprised ten different fish, made in five sizes. Colours varied widely, and because each piece was hand-sculpted, precise forms also vary, although they do follow a defined form, each with its own name." from “Hi Sklo Lo Sklo – Post War Czech Glass Design From Masterpiece To Mass-Produced” by Mark Hill.
