Was given this vase as a gift in the early 90's. The label said 'Heavy czech biomorphic vase 1960's' and cost 85 pounds. Is this correct? is it collectable? any idea of value not that I intend to sell it but just curious.
Many thanks

Ooooo, great vase and super gift!  It's Czechoslovakian and was designed by Jan Kotik for Skrdlovice glassworks in 1955.

Welcome from me too - fabby, fabby vase - I have one in exactly the same colours (beautiful combination, isn't it?)  ;D
which I bought from Anik.  :-*

I believe the shape was achieved with the use of blasts of pressurised air.  :o

The value is about right I guess, always a tricky and variable proposition. Desirability, colour combo, size and condition would all be factors.

Isn't it a totally modern/contemporary sort of thing... to have been designed in '55? 
The Czechs were so far ahead of us in so many ways.
