Oldrich Lipa was born in 1929 and trained at the Novy Bor Glass School and in Prague. He spent much of his working life as a designer for Karlovske Sklo/Moser (1955-81) and this rare small bowl dates from this period of his life. Probably Lipa’s most famous design was the ‘Magic Eye’ series (we have one example in stock), but some of his most satisfying works were on a smaller scale although all were blown to the high standards of this maker. The simple, organic form of this bowl is very pleasing with the colour complimenting the design rather than overpowering it. The original retail label is still in place adding to its appeal as is the excellent condition. A connoisseur’s piece.
