Large Czech opalescent bowl with black trailing
« on: September 09, 2011, 10:39:35 AM »
Does anyone know the glassworks that made this bowl?  It measures 7.5" wide and 4.5" high.  The trailing is really well done, but there's several bits missing on one side, worst luck!  As long as this bowl isn't too valuable, I'll probably use it for flowers in plastic pot indoors!

There's a part of a sticker left....hope that helps! x

TK at label and number means "technicka kontrola" = "checked" and according to number was easy to find who has checked it in case when some defect or bug would be found.
The guilty checker could be identofied and penalised.
