    I can't remember where I saw this alternating diamond and lens pressed pattern described as Libochovice and just checking Jiri's website and presglas, I am no wiser.
    This is a Czech inter-war pressed glass centrepiece bowl marked "Tchecoslovaquie" to the inner base. Although bought in England, it must have been intended for sale on the continent, or gravitated this way. There is also quite a movement of items from French thrift sales to the UK now.
    This is 27cm long x 14.5cm high.

      I have large bowl like this and I believe it is called "lens pattern". Gorgeous glass.

      Definitely Libochovice. Pattern number 2134. Try the Sklo Union book. This item is in the pre-1958 Libochovice catalogue, on the CD.

      This is an inter-war pattern, which continued to be produced for much of the 1950s.
      Unlikely to have been a Rudolf Schrötter design, Inwald were paying him an enormous salary by Czechoslovakian standards, Feigl and Morawetz would have been unable to match it.
