Matura 983 ashtray for Libochovice -- but funny size?
« on: November 10, 2010, 01:15:32 PM »
I was lucky enough to get this Adolf Matura Libochovice 983 ashtray for my Czech glass collection, but I've got a question about its strange size...  Having browsed the catalogues, I know it was made in two sizes, 12cm and 17cm. 
Mine, however, is 15,2cm in diameter -- was there a 15cm version of this ashtray as well?

Thank you for your help :)

Thank you for the replies...

But I'm confused.  Both Mark Hill and Marcus Newhall give 17cm as the diameter.  Jindrich, the Matura catalogue in the designers section of your site gives 12cm as the diameter.  But now it seems everyone has got an ashtray which is 15cm in diameter.  Is 15cm mentioned anywhere?  Is the 17cm a mistake?  Was this ashtray available in three sizes?  :huh:

Again, I ask for your patience with me.  :-[


EDIT:  Thank you, Jindrich...  I posted my questions before I read your second post.   :kissy:

It can be typing error Anik, I will check what is available, but seems to me that your Matura is real one - rare colour I suppose.
The mold fabrication was/is very expensive, I do not believe that more than two, but I suppose only one size of this ashtray had been manufactured.
This is advanture of our hobby, to search and check, and finaly attribute.

Thank you, Jindrich!

I think it's very interesting that there may not be a 12cm or a 17cm 983 ashtray, even though these are the only numbers I have found 'documented'.  The search for truth continues...  :)
