This brown glass Zelezny Brod Sklo vase is 5" high. It arrived safely to my new house but I don't have a scale or ruler here so I do not know the other dimensions and weight. There is minor scratching to the bottom. It has four lobes though the pictures make it look like only three.
I still scan some online auction sites in case I see something small and inexpensive that needs rescuing and saw this for a few dollars and was pretty sure it was ZBS and confirmed that after a bit of research. I found one labelled example. Since it is such a "Bleh" color I thought it might be an older piece and worth saving from an uncertain fate. Guessing it is at least 1960s?
I am not sure of the designer but have seen it attributed to Miloslav/Miroslav Klinger, but guessing it may at least have a number associated with it if not a designer?
Any information welcome. Leaving it a Mystery if/until I can find out more about it.
Update: I did find an example on the 20thcenturyglass.com web site but it does not have much information except for this:
"Made by the Zelezny Brod glassworks. Similar vases are shown in the book "Hi Sklo Lo Sklo" by Mark Hill, pages 48 + 49. "
Does anyone have this book?
