your blue vase, what size?
This is one of Frantisek Vizner's earliest designs for Sklo Union. Hermanova Hut, Plzen. around 1962.
Size should be around 20cm high.
A nice purchase.
Re books, oooh you naughty girl, fancy not taking note of the reviews.

Not sure of the other piece, probably Czech/Polish, but not come across it anywhere else. Reminicent of Vizner, but the design does not ring bells.
