Sometimes even I get to score...Zelezny Brod Glass figures
« on: January 25, 2011, 01:34:49 PM »
I scored big time last Saturday night. Me and some buddies were cruising the "Net" (I was all alone come to think about it) and I laid eyes on these gems that turned out to be pretty hard to get. I know they're blokes but still kinda exotic, being from another country and all. Anyway, long story short they eventually came home with me and I had a go at them with a pair of rubber gloves and some detergent (hey, they're OLD!!!) :thup:

Just showing off...(more images at the blog)

Best Regards
Emil

I was wondering where the message was going. Then I saw them. You are so lucky to have brought them home.

Good news - ZBS design Miloslav Klinger mid 50ties
Bad news - not necessarily old, might be also very recent.

Heya ppl!

Glad you like them!

Jindrich,

I'm confident they're old. If you take a look at my blog they still have the Bohemia Glass label from that time. They also came in their original Leerdam style boxes with hand written text on each box explaining which figure goes where (like "Trumpeta", "Myslivec", "Buben" etc.). The foam rubber in the boxes has turned to powder which also gives a clue about their age. Since there was no hunter in my set it seems the auctioneers had the boxes mixed up  :thud:
Thanks for the heads up though!

Best Regards
Emil

Great figures Emil, they seem to be vintage pieces over 30 years old maybe more. I think Jindra was making the point that they are not always old... A lucky find still and the boxes sound interesting too, perhaps you could post a picture of one if possible? It is pretty rare to find these as a group, at least I have not been lucky enough to find one!!

Robert,

Here's a shot of the box, not the best photo in the world though. There's also a note on the back of each box. There was tape around each box which was a bummer.

Best Regards
Emil

The box is almost as fascinating as the musician...  I really do think you were extra fortunate to get the figures with the boxes.  How wonderful for you!  :)

P.S.  I really do like all your figures with the exception of the 'clown' with the blue-button eyes.  Clowns scare me.  :spls:
