Hello, dear all,
Would anybody recognize the signature of this piece, please?

I think it must be a Czech glass.
Thank you in advance for your help,
Best,
ALex

Hi:  It's Miloslav Janků for Zbs, and, yes, it is Czech. Nice piece!

Thank you very much, David, for your fast reply. Is it possible to say when it might have been made at all?
Best,
Alexandra

I can't see the cat very clearly, but I'm pretty sure it's a Janků, too. Not one of my favourites, I have to admit.

Sorry, I forgot to mention date.  He seems to have produced most of his design in the 70's.  The dolphin is very nice. I also like his birds very much, but some animals--I'm thinking of a rabbit I have--don't quite make it.
