Glass Ashtray by Josef Hospodka Sold
DSCF3708_2

Multicolored glass ashtray designed by Czech designer Josef Hospodka . Hospodka is best known at Chribská for his brightly coloured organic forms designed from the mid-1950s-60s, and inspired by glass produced on Murano. However,  he was considerably more inventive, and utilised fully the hot-working talents of the glassmakers at Chribská. This unusual range is typical of that inventiveness. Typical items of the so-called Brussels Era. It's in good original condition, few visible scratches due to its age.
