If that's the one you mean, Marcus, I have 6 in amber and green. 3 different shades of each, but none of them matches either of the colours that this vase has been seen in. 

Sorry about the mention of a blue vase, that's an error of mine.

The vase at the start of this thread is a burnt orange colour.
The one in Andy McConnell's book is described as grey/green.
The recent eBay item is described as blue/green, but I think it's the same as the vase in Andy's book.

Hi Chris,
Your mention of blue is not mis-leading.
The other vase, that impinges on these deliberations, appears in a particularly scandinavian , I hesitate to say steel-blue, unlike RSW, and clearly distinct from previously known/identified VHJ Obal/Sklo Union colours. That blue is similar to Ruda. The greater range of 914s I see, the less convinced I am, that your amber vase saw its origins in Czechoslovakia.
With this vase, as you illustrate in amber, the grey-green is so untypically Czech that only Nemsova springs to mind, and there is still no current evidence that this factory, produced these colours.
Regards,
Marcus

There were 3 of these in the recent exhibition in King's Lynn.
- Amber
- Steel blue
- Dark grey

The attribution wasn't clear, but the nearest label said Vaclav Hanus...

Hi Chris,
These, as far as I am aware, have not featured in CGR, nor in any of the catalogues that will be published on the CD-ROM, on the 9th of November.
regards,
Marcus

Thanks, Marcus.
I quite agree with you on this one.  We must find the colours!
