    Hello,everyone!
    I've had this small (10cm tall ) vase for some years now.I bought it to see crackle and astglas item from close-up.It's made of thin glas and it's very light.
    Once I saw in the Internet (http://www.glaskilian.de /Krakeleeglas.658.0.html) the same vase (different colour) described as Bohmen (Bohemian) from 1925.
    Since there was a label "Hirschberg" on my vase,I tried to make clear its attribution.
    The name Hirschberg is a German name for Silesian (nowadays in Poland) town of JeleniaGora,where in 1924 the glassworks was set.After WWII the factory and its name was moved to Allendorf,Germany.They were about bancrupcy (http://www.zeit.de/1974/36/nur-die-schmelzoefen-brennen-noch/seite-3 ) and it probably happened,because I haven't found contemporary information about the glassworks.
    To sum up:not Bohemian but German,not from Hirschberg but from Allendorf,not from 1925 but from 1950s.
    But if it matters at all...
