Title: Pressed glass figurine, Rudolfova Hut (Sklo Union) by Jitka Forejtova

As identified by Marcus - click the link below to see the one on his site... (scroll down to the purple figurine)...

These have been discussed before and I think there's a little bit of confusion as to whether they're standalone or centrepieces - but hubby today came back from a bootsale with a fabulous find - three green pieces; a large bowl, a bit that sits in the middle of the bowl and the sculpture that sits on top of that - all 3 pieces fit together and match beautifully.  I'm going to take some photographs of it later today and will add to this thread for info.

They have been shown with frog and bowl before and Marcus has been commenting.

Ah, must have missed those posts Frank - I'll post mine up here anyway since it's a different colour.

Oh she is just lovely... so elegant.

I love her streamlined lines.  Will you keep her for a bit, or is she straight out of the door?

I'll put her up on my website Lynne, but not many things sell instantly so I'm sure she'll be with us for a while. I wish I had a nice big dining table to display her on - sadly she'll be wrapped up in bubble wrap and put away somewhere until sold.

Absolutely Stunning ;D :o

Is it just my monitor or is it a brighter "grass" green than normal for Sklo Union???

It is quite a bright green Tim but it's very much like the green of a large Sklo Union vase I had once.
