Ashtray
« on: August 04, 2012, 09:25:44 AM »
I aplogise if this occurs twice as I am having issues. This is a boat shaped ashtray thought it is in a sense angled /edged where it would be curved.  The glass has amazing clarity and the base is smooth and clear.  It stands 4cm high, 5cm wide and nine cm long. no markings to the maker.  i was hoping for some ideas. Thanks

This is it upside down.  the lines are so perfect and the clarity , no a flaw.  Its very geometric.  all lines and angles and not a hint of softness about it.

I believe because of the sharpness of it /the edges and the smooth finish  that its cut.

In that case, I would ZBS (Zelezny Brod Sklo) was a good bet

I was wondering Moser, just a little bit.
I don't know much about Moser - just that it screams monumental-ness and quality, and this does.
