Vintage 1950s Czech Glass 'Lens' or 'Bullet' Vases in a selection of colours, designed by Rudolf Schrotter for Rosice Glassworks, their pattern reference no 914.

Highly collectable vases in coloured pressed glass, featuring optical lens design on all 4 sides, manufactured in 2 sizes - the smaller size is approx. 6 inches tall (15cm) and the larger approx. 8 inches tall (20cm). They were made in a rainbow of colours and distributed widely across mid-century Europe. In Britain they were sold in Woolworths! They are satisfyingly heavy to hold and very tactile. They look great alone, in groups, or used as flower vases, and are the perfect accessory in any vintage-styled or modern contemporary home, fitting with any decor.

I am a keen collector of these vases as you will see from some of the additional photographs, and occasionally have duplicates to sell. Here are the examples I have available at present. Select from the dropdown menu to purchase, and check back regularly to see new stock:
