This is very scarce Czechoslovakian "ICEBERG WITH PENGUIN / THERMOMETER" figurine of the highest quality. It is in the style of Jaroslav Brychta, a world renowned artist, designer and Professor of the Zelezny Brod Glass School. Having first been a sculptor Brychta eventually expanded his designs to figurines of people engaged in sport and other activities that appealed to the Czech people. It is called the "Hutni sklo" technique in which solid glass figurines are made from molten glass by a team of workers who in part use very small and specialized tools to create the work. This figurine survived its 70 years of age in excellent condition - no chips, cracks or repairs. Dimension : 6 3/4" high, Czechoslovakia circa 1930's.
