It's got a Czech label, but who or what?
« on: October 17, 2012, 01:14:12 PM »
I picked up this vase because it had a Czech label, and because I liked the sort of transparant natural colouring. Does anyone here know what it is? The label sadly is a general post-1993 Bohemia one, so that doesn't bring me much further.

Polished flat at the base, and I estimate about 22 cm high (but I can go look for my measuring device if it's really important)

Not sure about this one. My first thought when I saw this vase was that it might be a Maltese piece with a swapped label. I could very well be wrong though as I know very little about newer Czech glass.

It's not Maltese.  :) It is very interesting though, I do like it.
