This Glass Works became the largest producer of pressed glass in Czechoslovakia.
Josef Inwald owned several glass factories that were nationalised and became part of the Sklo Union group in 1965.
The bowl pictured above is illustrated in a Rudolfova Hut 1958 catalogue accompanied with the numbers 1/00250 and its size of 40cm diameter.
Seen in crystal, amber, green, blue, and pink in a clear finish.
I purchase this bowl from MACKLEY FINE ART ANTIQUE & DECOR which is situated in
THE OLDE HORSHAM VILLAGE
9160 WESTRN HWY
This establishment is well worth a visit and is open daily from 12.30pm.
Seen in crystal, amber, green. blue and pink in a frosted finish.
The name ISADORA was chosen for this flower frog to differentiate it from the DANCING LADY two piece figural flower frog which is seen below in a water splash bowl also made by Josef Inwald which is similar in design.
It is acceptable to combine a bowl and a figural flower frog to make up a bowl set even though the combination does not appear in a catalogue. However it is important to make sure that they were made by the same glass maker.
When a bowl and a figural flower frog of two different glass makers are put together to make up a set it is known as a marriage in the collecting world and not a true set.
Josef Inwald acquired many glass factories in Czechoslovakia. Rudolfova Hut, Libochovice and Barolac were just three of his glass factories.
Angela Isadora Duncan was an American dancer. Born in California, she lived in Western Europe and the Soviet Union from the age of 22 until her tragic death in a car accident near Nice France on September 14th, 1927 at the age of 50.

This set was also made by one of Josef Inwald's glass works.
