SKLO TAS brick --- I'm sssooooo excited!!!!
« on: August 18, 2011, 10:02:44 AM »
Hello!

I wanted to show off my SKLO TAS advertising brick, a piece I'm so pleased with!  Not only is it heavy, masculine and industrial, but it has everything to do with Czech glass.  It's perfect.

I'm a happy woman! (http://serve.mysmiley.net/party/party0010.gif)

It actually looks like a real insulating brick too - a double whammy!
I was about to write "very stylish" - then remembered John just said that... hmmmmmm...

exceptionally stylish!

Thank you John and Sue.  It weighs 1985g and does seem to be a 'real' insulating brick.   ;D ;D ;D

A nice thing Anik. The similar Sklo Union one in Newhall is described as a money box isn't it? I have to say I have not seen many sold so a scarce piece to pick up.... very nice!

I greatly appreciate the replies.  :kissy:

Both bricks (the sklo tas and sklo union) shown in Newhall's Sklo Union are described as money boxes.  My piece hasn't got a hole for coins... perhaps that makes it even more special? ;)   Either way, I'm feeling highly fortunate.(http://serve.mysmiley.net/happy/happy0029.gif)

Great find, Anik. Please don't tell how much (little?) you paid for it. Now you can start building your house.

Aw David...  actually I paid a lot for it.  It's the second most expensive piece of glass I've ever bought, but I really, really wanted it:  http://www.glaskilian.de/A-SkloTas-Advertising-Glass-Br.425+B6YmFja1BJRD00MjUmTD0xJnByb2R1Y3RJRD0xNzA2MyZwaWRfcHJvZHVjdD00MjUmZGV0YWlsPQ__.0.html
