And also reproduced in the 90's by Beranek Glassworks "Skrdlovice".
I have read this a few days ago, but it can not confirm 100%

I have 4 of dose, and I noticed the one base is grinding?

May someone can give me a bit help with the Press glass Base to recognize the difference between the Sklo Union Glassworks

Wish you all a sunny Sunday

No Sergio, it had been never reproduced in Skrdlovice - this piece is pressed glass - in Skrdlovice was produced free hand blown glass.

A ground base often means older production, that is manual or semi-automated presses. The glass had to be finished by hand to give a flat base rim.
