Skrdlovice presentation set in original box

A Skrdlovice presentation set in original box likely dating from the 1950s. The set comprises three pieces: an oval bowl, a vase of ovoid form and a separate, smaller bowl or ashtray. Each piece has been equisitely made to a very high standard. Given the period this dates from and the quality of the pieces, this set is likely to have been made for a party official or possibly a reward for good/long service. The entire set has never been used and is in immaculate condition.
