Hi, just thought I'd chuck mine in the pot as well ! I've had this figure for some years now and it's in mauve matt glass, the base is round but with a decorative trim that looks very Czech to me.  Didn't come with a bowl. 16cms High.  Cheers, Gill

Ok....
A partial resolution of this:

Images is copyright and used in accordance with the copyright conditions accruing. Image is from CGR 1965, issue 11, page 348.
This is a lady with hand stippling, described as being: "treatment of the surface executed by the author J. Forejtova as a unique piece".
The Czech word for unique is "jedinečný", and may be used to mean "alone".

Marcus

Gill, yours is a different mould from mina AND made from a DIFFERENT master too  :o

This 'one-off' Jitka design  is becoming worthy of a book on its own 8)

Marcus CGR image seems to be a THIRD Mould and master.

If any one else has these - please pile the images in, bowl versions too!

Thanks Anne.

Looking at them again I would say angular one was first and then the mauve is the closest to that. Th b/w one seems to be a transition to the purple one. The group of 3 all seem to be the same mould and perhaps closest to the purple it would be good to have some close-ups of the figurines.

Thanks to everyone for pics and info.

Now I know about the design I probably won't ever see another one for sale.

Hi,
Would folks please confirm.....
All clear have ground bases? Matte do not?
Also, do the matte versions properly fit the frog?
I have had a message which suggests that it may be coincidence, rather than design, that the matte version fits the frog.
If the clear versions all fit, properly, with a ground base, and the matte sit a little proud with a clear division between base of the lady and frog. would that indicate the frosted version was probably not meant to sit on the frog?
Regards,
Marcus
