And it's a wonderful vase - I love it!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

I can't add too much as it's not a piece I've ever seen before. I'd add in Jan Konarik as a possibility. It's a sort of Exbor/meets Skrdlovice type piece.

If you can take it to one of the National Glass Fairs, Cambridge next I think, quite soon, there is a dealer who stocks a lot of Contemporary Czech who goes there quite a lot, his details may be on their website for floorplans etc... He may well be able to firmly place the designer of this complex piece,

Thanks to you all for your feedback and compliments (Sue).
I have just measured the vase and it stands 28cm tall 12cm @ widest point and it weighs an incredible 4.25kg.
Here's my dilemma; I am not a collector but could be tempted now after experiencing a piece like this. I understand now how you guys are so passionate as these are really tactile gorgeous pieces of glass and if I had a collection they would display brilliantly. Back to dilemma; we foster young children and everything seems to get broken hence I am selling my collection of Liberty & co pewter etc. I cannot display the vase as per the above although I would for sure if we were kid free. So; do I sell it? If so where? (ebay maybe) Does it have any significant value? .... I want it to be enjoyed otherwise it will be wrapped and hidden away for years. Advice please

ooh, put it up somewhere high, and enjoy it. Let the kids you're fostering enjoy it too!
Nothing wrong with learning a little art appreciation - in fact, it's a real bonus. :)

Hi Sue, Thanks for geting in contact again ... what is high? I really do not know values ...
The money would end up going to the kids in the summer holidays but is it an ice cream, funpark day or mini break? LOL

I meant high up on a top shelf - so it would be safe!
I really would not know about value at all. I would suspect, as it is relatively recent, that it would not, at the moment, achieve the sort of price it probably should do in the current secondary market.
So it would most likely raise enough for ice-creams, with extra flakes and raspberry sauce.
I think "funpark days" are very expensive, are they not?
