Hi Adam,

Since the label says Czech Republic, then it's newer production, i.e. from 1993 onwards.  

I'm a little confused as to when (and if) production at the the Crystalex factory ended.  I thought production at the Crystalex factory stopped in 2008/2009.  
See: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=24512.0

On the other hand, the Crystalex website is alive and well:

Sorry I can't be of more help. :huh:

A little extra information about Crystalex...  in this thread http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,38686.0.html
from February 2011, Jindrich writes: "Moreover - Crystalex a.s. still exists as well, they are still selling their stock production and new production they make only according to specific order, as far as I know."

 :hi:


P.S.  My apologies -- I lost the .html ending to the first link in my original post.
[Mod: Actually, a bit of tweaking of "spaces" before and after both url lines and setting to new lines has cleared whatever the problem was.]
