Hi Gilead,
Moderator I may be, dragon I am not... ;D ;D (OK, get in line anyone who disputes this....)
Yes, this is good, a fine piece of design, made at the Rosice factory of Sklo Union. Date of introduction @1960-61
These are known in un-coloured glass, :-* and: a non-uranium green, dark green, aubergine, amethyst, turquoise, sky-blue, cobalt, amber, citrine, and many daily variants.... and two sizes, little, 150 mm, big, 200mm.
A nice find.
Regards,
Marcus

I have not got round to correcting this, but this vase, Rosice pattern number 1032/150  is a  design by Jan Schmid, and neither of the two designers previously attributed to this vase, assumptions that have been made elsewhere, and wrongly used by me. Recently, I found papers which clarified the issue, tho the papers are capable of being wrong also.
Regards,
Marcus
