I have received an email query about an item etched to the edge: ČESKOMORAVSKÉ SKLARNY A.S. The item is in "typical" pale blue frosted glass and decorated with a "typical" Czech nude in a "head on knees" position.
Although the item is (apparently) a paperweight, I thought this forum would be the best first choice since all you experts on the Czech pieces hang out in here.
I searched this message board, because the name rang a bell with me and sure enough there were a couple of messages mentioning it. But all that seemed to be said was that the company was formed as a merging of others.
My Google searches show a couple of references in the pressglas-korrepospondenz website but the translated text (via online applications) does not seem to help me much. Other Google hits show Czech pages but I can't find a Czech / English transaltor.
Any info, such as dates of operation for ČESKOMORAVSKÉ SKLARNY A.S. will be gratefully received. And what significance, if any, does the "A.S." part of the name have?
