The company lasted from 1917 until 1935 during which time Czechoslovakia became an independent country. Mrazek, an artist of his time, continued to successfully market his stylized florals and another, rarer Art Deco design. The bright abstract designs remind people of Clarice Cliff but his work was less sophisticated, more folkloric and his pottery was much heavier gauge than the English earthenware she used. I think Peasant Art Pottery stands on its own as a desirable collectible, along with other Czech pottery from Tulla and Ditmar Ubach.
