Huge Vase Info Needed. - ID = Frantisek Zemek, Cz
« on: March 12, 2008, 07:58:50 PM »
Hi.. Does anyone recognise this vase I was told it was Murano but I have my doubts it looks like a Czech piece maybe?
Its a big beast of a vase with no label or signatures but it seems good quality and looks to date from the 70s.
Its 295 mm in height, 150 mm at widest and weighs 2.5 kgs. please take a look any info would be great. Thanks Paul UK.
