There seems to be quite a bit of interest here in ZBS figurines, so I thought you might enjoy photos from a trip I was fortunate enough to make to ZBS in 2008. We visited the sample/stock room where we were allowed to go through the boxes, and shelves where armies of ZBS figurines were stored (thousands of them).
Apparently at one time they were trying to save unique samples to start a museum, unless there were duplicates of the pieces in the museum samples, they were not for sale. Anything else we could find in the room was for sale, and there were hundred and hundreds of bins, thousands of figurines, including some that had been there for a very long time. The ZBS glassworks was HUGE. We were also able to search though other store rooms there with incredible amounts of glass from all eras.
This may be old news, but sadly I learned last week on my visit to the Czech Republic that ZBS is no more.
I managed to pick up several figurines, I've included photos here of a couple of my favorites that I purchased, as well as the photos I snapped at ZBS:http://s41.photobucket.com/albums/e299/b_severn/ZBS/
