There used to be a seller in Federal Way, just south of Seattle that had massive amounts of stuff on ebay and they shipped out of Bulgaria, but pretended not to... They are not around any longer.....  They made Al Capone look like a law abiding citizen....

Hello all,
I've got a big one...vase that is.  It's also a whirlpool design and just read these Vizner pieces were executed with the assistance of Jan Beránek.  Shocking how much glass is used, 15lbs - vase walls are 4cm thick.

Lucky fellow.

I'm dribbling everywhere having seen your lampbase, Anik!
Now I need to dry my keyboard before I toddle off for the evening... ;D

Sir Shankolot's big vase in Azure is beautiful.
But Anik's lamp base is the best Vizner "whirlpool" piece I have ever seen. :)
