The vase in the attachment looks very like a Bor vase by Pavel Hlava pictured on p.34 of Hi Sklo Lo Sklo, but the colour and dimensions are different. Is there a kind person out there, Jindra, e.g, who can confirm or provide an alternative atribution? It's 7" tall, 3 3/4' wide and weighs 3lbs 2 oz.
If so, another Czech piece found far from home in Canada's West Coast; I try to make them feel welcome. Thanks in anticipation.
