elephant by Janku
« on: November 03, 2008, 08:10:30 AM »
Does anyone know the approximate production date of this elephant?  I have Miloslav Janku listed as working in Bohemia in the 1930s but no further details... I have also found crystal animals by him with the additional stamp "Cesky" - and it looks a bit seventies in style.

Hi Ivo,
I think this is one of those problems caused by the Czech tradition of first male offspring carrying almost the same name as the father. Certainly there is a Miroslav Janku, working for ZBS in the 1960s/70s?? (sorry reference material is in France), and for Crystalex and Obalunion in the 1990s, but he was no Rudolf Schroetter......
Regards,
Marcus
