Back on GMB,
dear collegues and friend, last few weeks I was very busy in my regular job, so I could not participate in discussions here.
First bad news
Thanks to Marcus Newhall famous book, Czechoslovakian pressed glass becames to be very popular and collectable and hence also more expensive here in Czech republic. I know personaly 5 - 6 skilled and very tough pressed glass "hunters", timee when was possible to buy excellent pieces for nuts is definitely over.

Well, now good news. I am in touch with Frantisek Vizner and finaly we have summarised all his pressed glass designs. So I can disclose now the confirmed information: together had been realised 45 different Vizner's designs (I do not take into account colour variants and sizes), all of shapes we have documented, dated and exactly attributted.  Naturaly Frantisek had designed much more pressed glass pieces, but not all had been fabricated. So in case of doubts about F.V. pieces, ask me here or directly to my eMail.

Great to hear this Jindrich. If requests and replies can be made on the board (in the GLASS forum please) then we'll have a permanent record of them available on line too. (Mods will move topics to Czech as new posts cannot be made into Resolved forums, members can reply to existing posts though.)
