Alexandrite/Neodymium vase for ID? ID = ZBS
« on: July 22, 2012, 02:00:10 PM »
This is my second find of the day. 20cm in height, around 12cm at its widest. Base is highly polished (or is this termed as ground and polished ?) Thanks. Pete

How about ground and highly polished. ;D

It is Czech, from ZBS (Zelezny Brod) I believe.

Thanks for the speedy response and answer. I kept seeing similar in Murano so I thought thats where I should look. ZBS it is. Ground and Highly polished fits better. Thanks, I still have a lot to learn.  :-[

Could the Mods Alter title and move to relevant section. Photo's can be used by the board if needed. 
   Would I be close (after researching) to say Miloslav Klinger could have made this. I read and saw Alexandrite/Neodymium mentioned. Would this piece be the same. We are suffering from an overdose of sunlight here at the minute :o :o so will wait and see.
Pete. :-)

Thanks Adam, Looks like a Klinger and I also used a UV light on it and it has a manganese glow and does change colour in artificial light. I prefer the natural light look. Another great car boot find. I have listed this piece, will just nip to the Market place. :)   Pete
