In 1969 Vladislav Urban, for Rosice, mixing pressing and blowing techniques, created a successful series called "MORAVA" with a peculiar and rich texture. A year later in Libochovice their textures would become extreme and protruding.
* Later Pavel Pánek would be seduced by these globular forms. Libochovice #3469 - 1972

Tango glass. The name “Tango” for this type of crystal with solid, primary and brilliant colors seems anachronistic to us.
We can associate such a burst of color with the colors of tropical flowers and fruits as part of the South American imaginary; but it is difficult to relate to the aesthetics of Tango, a sordid dance and something of a scoundrel, born in the shadow of the streetlights of the "arrabal" dressed in black like cats at night.

Semejante estallido de color lo podemos asociar al colorido de las flores y frutas del trópico como parte del imaginario sud-americano; pero difícilmente relacionar con la estética del Tango, un baile sórdido y algo canalla nacido a la sombra de los faroles del “arrabal” vestidos de negro como gatos en la noche.

flying free:
Here Christine Dennison talks about the Tango:

and here interviewed by the BBC:

The Argentine Tango is the most beautiful dance :)  Thoughtful, intricate, a true connection and full of soul.  The music likewise - you cannot hear it without wanting to dance.
In my opinion  the glass embodies the dance.  The shapes, the colours and the classy black rims on coloured glass.  The blue and lilac and pink glass with black rims is amazing.

See Miguel Zotto and Daiana Gusperi dancing here:

SÁZAVA: small town located 50 km. south of Prague was the place chosen by František KAVALIR to found the KAVALIER glassworks in 1837.
The firm began specializing in glass (BOROSILICATE) for pharmacy and laboratory use. The KAVALIR family grew its facilities as the international prestige of its products grew.
A spirit of intense research allowed him to develop multiple patents, giving rise to different production lines for both medical and home use: UNEXCELLER / ISIS / NEUTRAL / K35 / PALEX / SIMAX, the latter created by Dr. Volf
 (1958) It turned out to be the most successful, being produced to this day.
At the same time she was required to carry out special commissions such as the famous ZPÍVAJÍCÍ FONTÁNA by [ Dana Hlovilová ], awarded at the Brussels Expo in 1958 / Prague METRO Stations [ František Vizner ] 1983 / Facade of the new NATIONAL THEATER for LATERNA MAGIKA [ Stanislav Libenský ] 1983……
With privatization after the fall of communism, the firm declined until it went bankrupt in 1984. In 2009 it was acquired and rescued by Mr. OTAKAR MOT'KA and was reborn with the name KAVALIERGLASS
