A Salvo's purchase a few weeks ago is this mug with a sticker that reads 'BERÁNEK FOUKANÉ SKLO'. The Beránek name is the link with my collection of Skrdlovice glass.
The earlier Beránek factory was created by Emanuel, Bohuslav and Josef Beránek.
Jirí Beránek (b. 1954) is the grandson of Bohuslav (1901 - 1986) and the son of Jaroslav Beránek (1927 - 2006); all three generations worked at Skrdlovice.
The Glass Atelier Beránek was a project begun by Jaroslav and Jirí Beránek in 1994. I think that the Beránek Foukané Sklo is a later production of mouth blown glass in very small batches. So far I have not seen a catalogue of these pieces. I believe that they have now ceased production in Zdar nad Sazavou.
In the first photo it is next to another Jiri Beránek vase posted here on CW : JIRI BERÁNEK - 9727 / 20.
