Hi flying free.

I had a look around and found that "Vsetin Hand Made Bohemia Art Glass Vase" will get you some hits on these vases.
In my opinion, There's an interesting vase at http://bohemiabloggen.blogspot.com/2011_01_01_archive.html

There's reference to the factory being wound down in 2003 according to the CV of their export manager Ing. MIROSLAVA JAKUBOVÁ:

"Po té působila rok ve vsetínské sklárně BAG (Barovier&Toso Czech Republic, s.r.o.) jako manažerka exportu. Po uzavření sklárny byla v letech 2003 - 8 zaměstnána ve firmě Glass Service, a.s., Vsetín jako koordinátorka marketingu."

There's also mention of "Barovier&Toso Czech Republic s.r.o." but the link from that site seems to lead nowhere now:

Thanks Kevin. I do quite like that piece and actually I had spotted a rather nice vase in amongst this picture, the rocket shaped one with the prunts on the join, which I do like a lot. https://picasaweb.google.com/Jindra8526/BAGVsetin?authkey=Gv1sRgCIHbu5DF4ruyTw#5467341584388993298
I think they fit in quite well aesthetically with the Alessi and Philippe Starck designs of that period as well  :sun:
 The piece I've bought (which will hopefully arrive safely and undamaged) is quite funky, so I was looking for the more outlandish pieces I think.  It isn't in this set of pictures from Jindrich so I was searching to try and find other designs.

Links to whole catalogue on Jindrich's site (thank you Jindrich :)  )here

Thanks for the images and thanks to Jindra.
I agree with your thoughts about the look. I'm also reminded of Carlo Mollino.
I also found some images of Rony Plesl's work for BAG (just 5) @ http://ronyplesl.com/brand-design/hand-blown-glass/bag/#p5

It's the one I bought JP  :girlcheer: - I was going to post pics when it arrived (which I will, so they remain on here rather than disappearing) but in fact those pics are good for now.
