How (un)common is this ZBS uranium colour?
« on: July 31, 2011, 04:54:06 PM »
I feel so lucky I´ve been able to get this one from ebay...  :)
The colour combination of a deep amber with uranium has surely been used
by other companies, too, but how common is it for ZBS?
Anyone come across further examples?
The label dates it post 1992.

Thank you for showing the glow  :) -- I find it very surprising that uranium would be used in a post 1992 ZBS piece, especially in this relatively common style of vase.  Had it not had a label, I don't think anyone would have suggested "Made in the Czech Republic". 

I think it's a really great find, Dirk!
