Marcus will do, or Grumpy  ;D ;D

As to who made the glass-blower, to the best of my knowledge, a Czechoslovakian company called Feigl and Moravka (Morawetz)
who were around from just before the first world war, until the end of the second.

Height is 160mm, so a little over six inches, and base is 130mm square (5 inches or so) and pressed sodium-potash glass.

He dates to the 1930s. He will not be being used as an ashtray. :D

Regards,

Marcus

David,
Thank you. Shot outside, on the first sunny day for a week  ;D
That camera was a good investment.
imho, this is one of the finest pieces of Czechoslovakian pressed glass I have seen, and a real pleasure to own.
Regards,
Grumpy

Ooohh Marcus, he is gorgeous! I can see now why you were so excited about this piece. Thank you for sharing the pictures of him... and if you ever spot another I think we'll be queuing up for first dibs at him!  ;)
