For those who despair (I admit I am often one of those folks) that it is hard to find glass at flea markets and malls (at least affordably), here is a picture of the pieces I picked up at two big flea markets (St. Paul and Elkhorn, WI) and the malls in between. Although I was looking for pottery, I couldn't pass up these finds since they were CHEAP. The best part is that I could look at the condition and not have to worry about shipping! The only one that is marked is the light green vase in the back left which has raised letters "Czecho Slovakia" which probably explains why they were so cheap. I also saw some really nice pieces with corresponding prices, which some of you might have opted for, but I try to stick to pottery. I have a weakness for fan vases, mostly pottery, but glass ones make nice additions.

    Thanks, but I haven't a clue who the makers might be. As the saying goes, the folks here have forgotten more about Czech glass than I have ever known. Any info would be appreciated. I would love it to be Loetz, but I'm guessing most are Kralik. I don't think I could be lucky enough to find a Loetz for $5 (again).

    Kralik marks are all on together..in either half moon or straight line...Loetz has them broken up into 2 words XOXO

    czechman, thanks for correction....but the only vase I meant was the one with the hallmark....not any of the others.

    Thanks everyone. I did forget to mention the malachite perfume, which I have seen before. I see I have another piece that is also found in Czechman's. I think that is about 5 pieces we have in common. I find this amazing given the vast variety of Czech glass. We must have similar tastes.
