Hi Sergio,
this is signed by Jindra Beranek.
I had already 2 of his items here on the board; seems to be a member from the Beranek familiy who moved to Austria and made glass in Czech style here (from the 1970ies on I think).
I do not know if he did this as a studio glass artist, or for some glassworks here.

I own 3 pieces signed by him, and have seen many many more during the last months...

Old Skrdlovice pieces were rarely signed and when signed so mostly with designation to special person as a gift. Not pure signature.
Some pieces, however are signed, many collectors come to Mr. Vizner and please him for signing his design.

But some pieces signed by Vizner he never seen and naturaly never signed, few of them I saw in Solihul two weeks ago.
Also Svoboda signs his recent pieces quite often.

The signature of Jan Beranek I never seen, possibly bOBA will know more.

I have not knowingly seen a Jan beranek signature either Jindra. This is, as you surely agree, with Michael (Rocco), the signature of the Beranek family member Jindrich who emigrated to Austria to make glass for most of his career. This is why many of his pieces resemble 1950's Skrdlovice, because he made (and designed) such pieces at Skrdlovice for a short time in the mid 1950's.
