Serbische/Serbian glass factory (Srpska Fabrika Stakla) was the one at Paracin. still in business I think. http://www.srpskafabrikastakla.com/en/about-us/history/ that adds Hrastnik, Zagreb. Hartmann shows its mark COC SFS

October 9 was closed in 2002, cannot find when it started though. Other one I found was Janhowits (Naz) & Co, sur Bilitza. which was older than SFS.

Linking factory and designer:
The contemporary glass in Serbia formed a small circle of artists related to the glass factory. The origins and development of modern design in Serbia, in mid 60-ies of XX century, coincides with the work of Veselka Zoric, Alexander Portnoy and Dimitri Gvozdenovic (SFS Paracin), Zoran Prvanović (RIN Zajecar) and Dragan Drobnjak ('9 October' Prokuplje). On the one hand, their activity contributed to raising the level of production and, on the other hand, the organization of production he felt the lack of prudential authentic content.

Thank you very much Frank for doing more research!
And sorry for the delayed reply, I was away...

With all those links you found (the piece on the Serbian auction website even has a label) the ID seems solid; and the time frame would fit nicely as well, 1970s/80s.

Interesting, did post this on the board sometime ago, had the piece at least 10 years and thought it may have been a lamp shade of sorts, ??? ::)

Keith, I had the exact same idea that it probably was a lamp shade -- but obviously it isn't ;D

I am "lovely guy who posted the ID" of this piece of glass. Hi everyone...
I have full confirmation that this piece of glass designed by Dragan Drobnjak, somewhere in the period 1970-1986.
Dragan Drobnjak is born 1941, and completed the school for sculptors. He was leading designer of the factory "9. October" from Prokuplje (Serbia) beetween 1969-1991.
Factory in Prokuplje was founded by Serbian glass factory in 1962, as their outpost. Later glassworks became independent and functioned to bankruptcy 2003.
During the 19th and 20th century in Serbia worked 10 glassworks.
if anyone has any questions I will gladly answer.

I forgot to add some other informations. The name of this piece of glass is "Ikebana". Pattern number is 605. for height of 30 cm and 606. for height of 20 cm.
It was used to decorate the flowers, but also as lamp shade.

I also forgot to sign it. My name is Dejan.
