Well, all four pieces above is Forejtov√° :-) but to be sure, I am downloading two other
Note please different quallity of pieces.

Forejtova figure is not very rare here, but complete Forejtova design as cetrepiece with frog and bowl I have seen only in Marcus' collection and in CGR.
Possibly figure will fit to standardised frog, I did not try it yet but I will.

The size should help - my pieces are about 16 cm height and 5.5 cm is maximum diameter of bottom.

Here's mine from my sold archives - the bowl, frog & centrepiece combo in green.

Hi Pip, yes i have handled that one, the other more angular ones alway's seem to be in frosted glass for some reason.
This new one seem's to be inspired (good word that  :-X) by the angular one's, i have tried to find a website for kristolcolor but it seem'e it is still under construction, i would like to see their catalogue.

Hi Sue,
Great post.
I have the rounded Jitka figure in the frosted peach colour & just bought one like yours in the same colour, i don't have it yet to compare but they Definitely not by the same hand do you know, they look so alike.

Actual, coincidently, the Jitka figure i have was bought in Italy in the 1970s.
Are you sure they're not Italian?

They appear in Czech catalogues, so unlikely

Thanks Lustrestone.
Are they both Czech do you know? If so, are they by the same hand?

I had this one that is hollow and labelled if it is useful for reference.

The CVG lady appears to have much less detail than the original Jitka lady.

It seems to be another case of the Cesare Toso (or not) dogs
