Steve,
Czechoslovakia became Czech republic in 1993, so its less than 15 years old

I am surprised that you still buy every piece of glass you come across. You must run out of space soon. You must have self control and be selected. But on the other hand you may be rich enough to buy a house for your glass collection alone.

Jihlavske Sklarny Bohemia were wound up by the court in Brno some time ago despite investment from the US. I believe the assets are now owned by Burson, but the town's web-site suggests the factory itself is no longer open.
The Dobronin plant was formerly part of Bohemia Podebrady.
