    This vase is 5.5" high x 4.5" base x 1.75" top diameters. It weighs in at 3 lbs 6 ounces (1.53 kg). It is difficult to capture the proportions of this vase in an image using my phone camera. It is somewhat more squat, broader at the base, than my images show. The blue is also a bit more electric. I could not find a defect on it. In the past, someone put rubber feet on it and the bottom is unmarred. Dates that I have found for these vases run from 1968 to the 1980s. I was not able to find another vase in this shape.

    I posted this vase once before, but was not happy with my images, so took it down. These images are quite a bit better, I think.

    keramikos gave some good comments, on the first post, which I saved and include below:

    It's not conical, but I found this:

      I'm loving all your Beraneks, Kevin!
      This one is certainly very clever and has great optics. The shape gets me, so cool!

      @racer4four - I am liking them, too, Karen! This one is like a fire burning in the fireplace. It draws the eye from anywhere in the room.

      Thanks for loving my whirlpool vase blunderbuss2 and racer4four!

      I had some time to do some research on František Vizner and was pleasantly surprised to find a web site devoted to his life and work!

      Great piece... this conical shape was designed in 1974 for Skrdlovice as pattern 7406. As the label on your piece shows, it was also produced more recently by Beranek glassworks (same pattern number).

      @Anik - Thanks for the information and for loving my vase! I did find this shape in one of links on Jind?ich Pa?ík's web site in a different color while looking for my "Andromeda" vase.
