Thought this was a Holmegaard Menuet heart-shaped vase in pink when I picked it up, but the opening is clearly different. It's a weird irregular shape (see pic) – almost like a crude bird shape. Any ideas what this is? Go on- - tell me it's *&!!!*@@ Wedgewood again!

Does it change colour when placed undeneath flourescent light? It could be Czech glass form Zelezny Brod. The light changing glass is referred to as either Alexandrite or Noedymium. Of course I coud be miles off track, but the pink colour is very similar. But its not Wedgwood! Laughter

How is the base finished? a base pic is always useful in ID requests.

Just tried it out - there's a distinct colour difference under a strip light, where it becomes much bluer. The base is absolutely flat, with some very very fine concentric circles, almost like scratches.

On edit: you're right. Here's the same thing on Ebay but in yellow. Genius!

Zelezny Brod ZBS mid century citrine yellow art glass vase, labelled

Further rooting around suggests it's by Miloslav Klinger for ZBS.
