Description

A stunning Bohemian organic glass vase, made in very unusual and quite rare neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! The vase appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)!This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass..

Made by the Zelezny Brod glassworks, and designed by Frantisek Zemek in the 1950's. Similar vases are shown in the book "Hi Sklo Lo Sklo" by Mark Hill, pages 48 + 49.

Measures approx 7.75 inches tall by 4.5 inches in diameter at widest point.
