Lilac ashtray - ID = ZBS (Zelezny Brod)
« on: January 24, 2019, 03:55:06 PM »
Hi All.  Hope someone can help.  Found this ashtray (I think it is an ashtray but happy to be corrected on that) in the North West of England.  A delicate lilac colour, biomorphic/organic in design with a flat polished base.  Not many marks on the base which could point towards it being a modern piece.  Measures 17 cm across at the widest part x 6 cm tall and weighs 760 gms.  Any help much appreciated

Looks like ZBS to me - Zelezny Brod. Companion piece to the vase shown here second row down, right hand side I expect:

Always good to get confirmation with a labelled example. Is yours neodymium glass?

Presumably there are also examples with two colours like this vase.
