Czech novelty figural thermometer - ID = ZBS

Here is a cute novelty thermometer that I got in an op shop the other day.
It is about 15cm high, & the duck glows under black light. The thermometer is in perfect working order.
There are 2 labels on the base, one reading "Made in Czechoslovakia", but the other gold, shield-like one is indecipherable to me.
Anyone recognise it? Who made it & what era?
I'm thinking maybe mid-20th C. vintage.

Thanks!

looks like a ZBS sticker. I'd put this one in the 60s - but I could be a few years off....

heartofglass:
Thanks Ivo!
It does look like it says ZBS,in a stylised script, when I examine it more closely.
Now, please excuse my lack of knowledge in this area, but who were ZBS?
 :oops:

Ivo:
are, Marinka, are. Zelezni Brodski Sklo, from Zelezni Brod, Czech Republic. Here is their website

heartofglass:
Thanks again, Ivo!
I really appreciate the info,& it was great to see the website of the maker of my little thermometer!
As I said, glass of this period isn't my specialty,but I couldn't resist this cute item,which is also very useful. :)
