There is nothing 'dumpy' about this vase...  I think it's simply gorgeous!

I think he means dumpy as in short and fat Anik not as in rubbish. ;) Or maybe dump as in glass dump but I still think short and fat.

Edit: Just seen the colours inside although it is shortish and slightly bulbous it appears to be mixed glass, so I was wrong.

I think its a lovely piece as well.

It's Czech, I have some poor photos of one with a gold (mauve writing) Bohemia Glass export label.

They have been on the message board before, I thought I had better photos, will have a look later.

I can't find the previous thread or any other photos so here we go.

The first photo is out of focus but the shape can be seen. The second photo is more in focus and the third is the label from the second photo, if you see what I mean. ;D

John

Looking at the photo the label is more yellow than gold.
