Thanks guys!

@David: Yes, really quite confusing with these Karlovarske production pieces (see also the e-mail I got from Moser regarding my tall Lipa vase >> Link).
But as they have used Moser labels on their pieces 40 years ago to promote them it is not very logical to deny it now....
Another interesting issue are the threaded Suhajek pieces from the 1970s; they usually come unmarked, but I have seen one bowl from that range with an etched mark to the base -- so according to their concept this one is Moser production, while the others are Karlovarske Sklo ???

@Dirk: Naschmarkt fleamarket is great! ;D
My number one source, almost half of my collection is from there, and some of the best pieces, too (though I had a dry spell in March/April this year).
And it is totally crazy to go there a second time at about 6 pm when it is almost at the end -- everything is on the ground, and hundreds of hysterical people hunting for the last bargain, or waiting for a pile of old clothes to be abandoned by the seller so they can grab something for free...

One more great Mika piece for my collection -- the matching jardiniere :D
24 cm wide, at a weight of around 3.5 kg...

Thanks both! - These Mika vases photograph so well...

And Sue is perfectly right that I tend to look more at the vase than at my telly at the moment ;)
