Lovely colour, Anik!
Is it a big one?

Michael, hasn't anyone ever told you that it's not the size that counts?   ;)
It's the small one, though still a perfectly substantial piece.

P.S. Thank you Sue, m and Michael for your words of praise.

;D Size does matter!

No, honestly, my question was rather if you knew what the difference was between PN 7421/11 and 7422/11 (they look identical in the pattern book).
Mine at 15 cm was quite easy to ID...

Of course size matters... who needs political correctness, anyway?  ;D

The pattern numbers for these Svoboda vases confuse me as well.  My vase is 10cm tall and 11cm wide.  I suppose it's the 7421/11 or the 7422/11.  As you say, the drawings are exactly alike...

I wonder if the difference is somewhere in the bubbly glass?
7421: Kristal + Soda + R (whatever the "R" might refer to)
7422: Kristal + Sypani Soda
7423: Kristal + Soda

I wish I knew the answer, Michael. (It's a shame there isn't a legend included on the first page, like the 50s pattern books have.)

After some time a new addition (and a quite exciting one -- well, at least to me ;) )

Early Emanuel Beranek bowl from 1950, PN 5068; snail / nautilus shape, bubbly glass decorated with internal red spiral, lenght 20 cm (should be 15 according to the pattern book).
A style not often seen, similar pieces were designed by Milena Veliskova.
Sort of a transition from the Pulegoso pieces (like the lovely ones Craig showed recently) to the organic style of the 1950s.

And an interesting circular label I have not seen before...

Fabulous find, Michael. Not a piece I've ever seen before. The label is a generic export label, but would be different from the usual label we see because Skrdlovice wasn't part of the UUR until 1957.

You've motivated me to add my latest Vizners, one of my all time favourite designs.
