Hi folks!

Although nicely marked, I've made my eyes bothery trying to decipher the name. Perhaps one of you will recognize the pattern/style or even the signature on this acid-etched marked piece. I think Scandinavian, but perhaps French...

This is 11.75" tall, and 3.25" diameter. Ground polished bottom, with mark as shown. Help!

Thanks!

Kelli

When I looked at the bottle, my first thoughts were Peill & Putzler, Germany - but that's NOT their mark. Sorry I can't help more, I can't make out the writing at all, but your photos are fantastic!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thats a Czech bottle from Podebrady, the designer is V. Zahour 1976. The stopper(?) is missing though.

Best Regards
Emil

Thanks, Chopin-Liszt! :)

Emil, thank you so much! I never in a million years would have deciphered that name. Bless you!
