Just looking at Marks Hills Hi Sklo Lo Sklo book, page 140.

The label is a generic Glass Export logo and used on all table and decorative wares from the 1950s-70s-  (yellow label)

Later label versions are silver or blue in colour, which yours would fall into. So your guess of around the 80s is probally about right.

Hi Greg

Just reading Mark's book myself I see what you mean - however when I compare the label to other peices I have with the yellow label from 70s I see that 'made in Czechoslovakia' is missed off the modern label. I wonder if this is just a modern update or something more sinister.

The vase I posted comes with a leaflet printed by Henry Marchant who 'Has been representing Bohemia Glass for more than half a century' and this is from a range of designs 'Henry Marchant has helped to develop'

Hi Adam,

I noticed the omission of 'made in Czechoslovakia' on the other labels. I'm not 100% sure, however, my feeling is that this wording was just not used in later additions of these generic export labels. Also worth mentioning that the wording on the earlier labels would have been redundant in 1993, due to the creation of the Czech Republic.

Sure someone will confirm for sure.

Greg

PPlease do not overestimate labels. This is standard Glassexport label, used in Czechoslovakia and also by Bohemia Crystal / Crystalex in Czech republic. In general chaos during communismus the available labels were used and does not always fit to specific factory. When correct labels were not available than the other were applied.

For nowadays labels (Czech republiv) see: www.upv.cz (trade mark database on line)

Label is as used on the cover of the current catalogue in above link. I would guess you piece is 1990s earliest to 2000s but design could be earlier of course.

More on Henry Marchant mentioned in Adam's leaflet:
http://www.crystalglassuk.com/profile.htm - this might fill in a gap or two regarding the marketing of some Czechoslovakian glass in the UK.

And a little bit more here:
