    This ashtray is 4.75" each side by 2.5" high and weighs 1.5 lbs. Ground bottom with textured underside and polished top surface. The foil SKLO label is intact. It appears to be made to accomodate a single cigarette. I didn't have any SKLO labeled pieces in my collection and wanted one as an example. Using seller's images until it arrives.

    There are a couple of examples of the bottom finish on this piece, along with some history on Zelezny Brod Sklo Glass, here:

    Another Czech designer for whom biographical information is not readily available so here is some:

    Miloslav Klinger was a Czech designer who was born in 1922 in Hrubá Horka near Železný Brod and died in 1999. Klinger served a year of apprenticeship in making glass chandeliers under Josef Kleinert. He then studied at the Glass School in Železný Brod under the guidance of Professor Jaroslav Brychta and master Jan Stuchlík. After graduation from the Glass School, Klinger worked for two years in Kleiert's company as a designer. When he completed his studies, Klinger came back to Železný Brod as a designer, where, except for a brief career as the director of the Glass School in Železný Brod, he remained for the rest of his life.

      An art glass ashtray is a sure sign of the time period it was fabricated, I find it amazing, the 1950s-60s cigarette smoking lifetyle, and how these ashtrays were highly appreciated and used in the social gatherings people had, with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other. So much has changed since then....

      Thanks for your interesting comment, truthordare! Many of my family members smoked when I was younger, but I don't remember much about their ashtrays! You are probably right, though. I am the family heirloom repository and no ashtrays have been handed down to me. My family was very working glass, but did have some nice American factory glass which I inherited. The previous generation passed in the 1990s and early 2000s. I do have some cousins that still smoke. I will have to ask them if they have a love affair with their ashtrays. One of them does collect glass!!
