Vintage Czech Bohemian rare hand lampwork glass marionette puppet or figurine head. Almost in a historical caricature style, this is a unique and rare item from a private collection, fresh to the market and will not be found anywhere else. Research shows this glass head was possibly made at the Zelezny Brod school of art under the professorship or Jaroslav Brychta. Made either as a sample piece, an exhibition piece or an unfinished figurine. 
Glass art figurine heads are one of the most difficult examples of glass work. Compared to working in wood or clay, there is little room for error when working with hot glass and to get the characteristics correct so the finished product looks realistic is pure skill.
This is one of a series we have for sale and came from a private collection which has been in the same family for over 50 years. Descendents of the family worked in the glass industry until the 1970's.
This is a unique collectable item. Alternatively, an accomplished lampworker could create a figurine, puppet or even a cocktail stirrer.
