Well thanks fontanazul, I'd say you've created - through the medium of illustration - a reasonably accurate rendition of the feeling one could experience in these circumstances. Further to this trauma I now have a new addition to my Exbor shelf (it's a good, solid shelf - not in any way wobbly, so that's a relief). It's quite an unusual one I think. A whopping 342mm tall, possibly designed by Pavel Hava. Difficult to photograph as the colours are quite dark - it looks a lot better in real life than it does here. Exbor mark is a bit poor but it's there all the same.

Wow, beautiful vase!
These square pieces were more likely designed by Adolf Matura >> Link to CGR 1961/7 on Jindrich's site

Thanks for that Michael. Does indeed look as though it might be Adolf Matura then. The shape is mostly like the top, brightly lit of my three pictures, ie. more tapered than it appears in the second picture. I'm afraid my cheap camera has distorted the shape slightly, made it look less tapered than it is. In the book page link you've added it's like the one on the far right of the illustration.
