      Lovely little bowl. Because of the label, we know it was produced by Crystalex in 1992 or earlier (though I don't think much earlier... probably anytime between the 1980s and early 1990s.) Unfortunately, I don't know who the designer might be.

      Thanks Anik ;) ;) ;)

      80's is what I figured as well ...

      Is it normal for these not to have any signatures on the bottom ? I find it odd that these carry a sticker that no one has ever removed, was it customary for people back then to keep the stickers on these items ?

      Good question Ludwig222.
      Czech labels are more often found on these more recent glass or crystal pieces. Don't know why. There are rarely a signature or initials on these, since the individual craftsman was not celebrated in a Soviet Communist environment.
      Even before then, there are very few marks on Bohemian and Czech glass, the only consistent one were put on exports going to the USA, as it was an import law, country of provenance information had to be on the item.
