I love this ashtray... it looks both masculine and modern in form.  It's 4,5cm tall, 13cm wide and weighs 723g.  Though the colours are difficult to photograph, the ashtray has a brown-cased-in-yellow stem, and a yellow body.  I think it might be a ZBS piece, but I'm not sure.  

I would appreciate your thoughts.  Thank you for looking.

Beautiful ashtray, Anik!

I would say ZBS, too -- the colour combination of citrin and brown seems rather typical for them: https://picasaweb.google.com/exat53/CzGlas#5159382999784987458

The colour isn't really 'brown'...  at least, not the same 'Virginit' as in my other ZBS piece which you can see in my album:  https://picasaweb.google.com/105348959949603419807/CzechBlownAndMouldedCollection#5593896279662058834
It's more of an amethysty-olive colour, if you can imagine that. :spls:

But if your gut also says ZBS, then I'm satisfied.  Thank you, Michael!

Sorry Anik, I had overlooked that you have one of those yellow-brown pieces in your gallery :wsh:
So you can compare them side by side in real life...

There is also this ZBS aubergine-brown colour (vase in Astrid's gallery): https://picasaweb.google.com/102861706167408125672/4CzechGlass#5492272812200301170
A better match?

Style-wise I would still think ZBS is a strong possibility :-)

Aubergine-brown does sound more realistic than 'amethysty-olive'...  ::)  And my ashtray is the same colour as Astrid's vase.  Considering the shape, which looks right for the glassworks, ZBS it is.  ;D
