Amber is very common in the UK. The pale yellow less so, but I think Anne B posted an image of one at sometime. Still not rare, or even scarce IMHO.

Hi,
It is difficult to tell precise colours,on the images, Anne.
Very light yellow, the Czechs refer to as citrin, then there is a very bright yellow and then amber.
Regards,
Marcus

Marcus, is there any update on what we ought to call the pattern? Should we just change the title to omit the bullet vase reference?

Hi Cathy,
This vase pattern has no name, like a great many other pieces of Sklo Union production. The !962 exhibition at UPM describes the vase as having four lenses. To apply that as the name would add to the number of vases described as "Lens" vases, but imho is less problematic than leaving it as "Bullet".
Regards,
Marcus

If no official name can be found, then I think the author can be given the right to call it what they think is most appropriate. Is this not the way it works in the world of Carni glass?

However, I tend to think the name 'Bullet' is now synonymous with that vase, perhaps?

And I still think  This Vase by Frantisek Vizner for Hermanova Hut' should be called a 'Tetris' Vase ;D
