Have just started unpacking stored glass from move 4+ yrs ago.  Exciting to be back, but old age seems to have robbed me of any knowledge I'd accumulated, aaargh.  This piece is, heavy, 23cm tall x 25cm at widest points on rim. Brilliant cobalt with IOW tones, does anyone recognise signature/factory please?

Probably by Jan Zeman, modern Czech with a traditional Bohemian homage...

And a possibly related old thread, which may also be by Jan Zeman...

Thanks Greg, just had a look at some of Jan Zeman's  pieces, my vase looks to have come from same stable.

You're weclome.

Forgot to mention the vase shown in the first link also carries a monogram type mark (pic 10) to the base, you may want to compare.
