Mark is true. Borocrystal is name of factory from 50ties. But label, trade mark was used up to 80ties. Please look to item Egermann somewhere bellow.

Thanks, Jindrich!
I read this thread and some others where you explained the fates of the Czech glassworks... Rather complicated (especially regarding the labels used :))

Well, I wouldn't mind if my vase had an Exbor stamp, but I am very glad with the Borocrystal thing as well!
Found another one with a Borocrystal label here: http://www.artglassleiden.nl/archives/2900

My third vase from this range! :chky: Found in a small second-hand shop today.

It has the same shape and cutting as the purple/orange one (6-sided top, 5-sided bottom), layers are clear-green-clear with red core.
Once again unmarked.

I am very happy about this one, although it has a chip at the rim and some scratching to one side...

Still the 3 look beautiful together :)

Thanks for looking
Michael

Oh wow...  though I had my doubts about how much I liked your first vase, I think the three look absolutely gorgeous together!!!  Now I'm jealous!

Congratulations, Michael!!! (http://serve.mysmiley.net/happy/happy0001.gif)

Truly sculptural display and fabulous colours  :mrgreen:
I can't get along with cut glass pieces for some reason but these are beautiful.

Thanks a lot, Anik and m!

I just love this range of vases (quite obvious, isn't it :))

Interesting thing I noticed when browsing through CGR: although they came in a variety of shapes and colours and seem to have been commercially very successful, I never saw a piece from this range in CGR until this issue from 1991 (apart from the very stylish early examples like this one).
