No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

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!  ;)
