Hotworked amethyst ashtray -- which glassworks?
« on: August 14, 2011, 07:43:43 AM »
Hi,

I've recently purchased a small hotworked triangular ashtray, but can't figure out which glassworks it comes from...  ZBS, Skrdlovice, other?  Does anyone recognise it?

The piece is 6,5cm tall, 14cm wide and weighs 865g (quite a bit for its small size). There is an indentation towards the bottom of each side, and only one cigarette rest.  There is quite a bit of wear to the base.  I did my best with the photographs, but it's a terribly difficult piece to capture well.   :-\

All help and comments appreciated.

Hi Anik :hi:

I would guess ZBS -- seems to be that ZBS aubergine colour we discussed somewhere here  before (like this vase in your gallery).

I saw a nice citrin/brown Klinger ZBS piece here at the fleamarket today, but at 30,- Euro faaaaar too expensive...

 :pb: :pb: :pb:  My silly brain never thought of comparing the ashtray with other pieces I've already got in my collection.  Michael, you are absolutely right.

Thank you!  :kissy:
