No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Hi,
this one sneaked too rapidly from the front page, so I missed it.
However, signed by Professor Jan Černy, the  A on the label would have carried the word Art between the bottom legs of the A, and the word Czechoslovakia, below the square. This label was used for limited edition, signed items. Probably made in Zelezny Brod.
Regards,
Marcus

Hi Marcus!

Many thanks for the Info - very much appreciated.

You've said it's a limited edition so I'm guessing it must be worth more than the £5 I paid for it  :) :) :hiclp:

Regards
Richard

Only if someone is willing to pay more of course. I'd pay 5 euros...  >:D

Does it have a name I wonder, like 'Lyre' vase? Very unusual piece anyway.
