Astrid this is looking more and more promising. colours right and you have 2 pieces with a similar shape. What about the sticker / does zbs use stickers ?

Thanks

I don't think there is much doubt that your vase was made by Zelezny Brod.

At the bottom of this page are two of the labels that were used (there will have been others): http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/thumbnails.php?album=534&page=2

I've got 3rd vase down,bought about 18 months ago but with quite a lot of age wear and came into the charity shop I work at with a Whitefriars cucumber vase and Aseda vase.That made me think it was 60's.Does anyone know how long they've been making them? TIA

I agree that we can safely put this down as ZBS. According to Mark Hill in his book Hi Sklo, Low Sklo,  Klinger designed for ZBS from 1948 onwards to 1982, many of his vases were produced for decades, and that his designs are hard to date because of that. If someone happens to know whether this particular colour was introduced at a certain time, we can put the date after that, but other than that, I have no clue.

Much worse Astrid, the Klinger's design had been produced also in 90ties and on beginning our century.
Recent pieces used sam logo as old ZBS but instead obf Made in Cyechoslovakia in printed Made in Czech republic - it is the sign that piece could not be manufactured before 1993.

Yes, I assumed that they kept producing the Klinger designs after 1982 as well. Apart from the difference in label, I have the feeling that with some colours you can distinguish between the older and the newer pieces (for instance later pink pieces are more intensely coloured than early ones).

Is there any knowledge available about which designs and which colours were produced in the earlier periods, but not in the later ones?

There is a different forum here dedicated to buying and selling, Glass Market Place. You can link there to an auction or post it for sale.

Don't expect too much, however. There are people who'll buy ZBS, but the prices aren't particularly high because there is so much of it.
