This is a Stunning Czech cased, cut glass vase, designed by Oldrich Lipsky for Exbor, Czechoslovakia circa 1964.

A Striking Modernist design from Exbor, who produced cutting edge, modern avant garde designs during this period. A striking example of the renaissance in Czech glass design in the 1960′s.

The vase with its cased thick / chunky glass in yellow and red, is cut with wavy undulating optical effects on the corner edges.
