(Damaged) Eiffel Tower --> Label = CZECH
« on: August 01, 2011, 04:07:08 PM »
 :hi: there:

This is a damaged piece but you know me - I still will buy it because it had labels on it.  I do not care if not a showpiece item for my Glass Cabinet -- but hope that the info (confirmed ID with the label) will still be a contributing info to the Board here for anyone later that might find this piece.  Plus I only paid a $1.00 for it, so why not post the info to the board with the confirmed Label??

Item is 7 inches tall, and about 3.5 inches at the base.  Has two labels on it.  One says it is BOHEMIAN Crystal.

Before I posted I checked to see if any had been posted.  Gill had posted one similar to this -- but his had more of a rounded top (which I thought might have been ground down).  But then I noticed his base on his had less lines on it -- so it is NOT the same as the one Gill had (Sorry no ID yet, Gil).

Anyways here it is.  Still contributing info for the board -- even if damaged, but the label means more to me   ;D


* Not sure IF this is a chuck of glass, or a Paperweight, or where to post .......so I just posted it here rather than PW section.

Is this what you mean (http://www.debook.com/gifs/buttwiggle.gif)               :24: :24:  I just had to do that  ;D


I will get some side images (and behind....LOL)  of this piece, even if damaged.  It is a triangular shape, and I had not found one posted here yet when I did a search first before I posted it.  So I thought it might be of interest.

Thanks  :kissy:

Naughty Rose, what have you been eating (http://www.debook.com/gifs/weedyummy.gif)

Just so people can see how the illusion is made.

It bears a similarity to the Eiffel Tower, but is it??  It looks wrong to me, even if it is stylised...   :huh:

Edit:  Think it could be the Petrin Tower in Prague? Or maybe not.,..

Gee....Maybe it is not the Eiffel tower.  I just assume it was.... :ho:  Maybe some other Tower ??

I have taken some pics of it (back, and sides) and will post them later today.

Having seen this second slightly larger one, it seems bizarre that it is clearly a different tower and I wonder if these were just made as giftware with no direct association to anything.

Nice, can you add a view from behind too please.

Did not forget, just a little slow....LOL.  :spls:

Maybe this is not the Eiffal Tower, I just *assumed* it was.  Anyway, here are some back pics as the back edge is cut out there for the design (shape) and then the glass (prism) magnifies it from the front.  Hope that helps some.  Again, not sure IF this is the Eiffal tower, or just another tower.
