    This is one of the most impressive glass/crystal products designed in Czechoslovakia, and exported to the West.

    Mark Hill explains the complex workmanship of molding a brick size piece of hot glass with a mostly clear mass and a dollop of another flash color, which will stay on the surface of one side. Then that side is cut with a criss cross of trenches, highlighting the contrast.

    These were produced in blue, golden yellow, green and purple, I would say violet as it is closer to red in shade. The rest of the vase is cut at different angles and polished, making it even more optically pleasing. By Ladislav Oliva, for Exbor, vase 8 inches high, page 166 in the Mark Hill SKLO booklet.
