Bought this recently the quality isn't up to much but it's funky and looks great with the light behind it. Any ideas where it's from, I suspect Eastern Europe or Asia, but anyone know.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I quite like these head things except that they scare me. I could not live with one.

I find that I'm getting more into the waccy and abstract pieces as I get older. This particular one was less than £20 including postage which I thought a real must have price.

I'm beginning to think that Paul and I have similar tastes...we'd have to sharpen our elbows at a bootfair!   :shock: I really like this colourful head, I wonder if the base might be the deciding factor in attribution?  

My friend does glass fusing - is it ok if I forward her a copy of the photo and ask if she has any idea on a maker?  Or country of origin?

Oh dear Max similar taste to me, then you must need some therapy!!!
Sure send on to your friend, the base looks similar to those I've seen on modern Czech pieces but not at all certain.

Thanks Ray I reckon this will be one of those things that will turn up when least expected, be nice to eventually pin it down though.
