Web Description: 
The brothers Václav Plátek (Czech, 1917-1994) and Miroslav Plátek (Czech, 1922-1987) produced many successful, commercial designs for glassware. They often collaborated on their designs, with Václav focusing on concept and shape and Miroslav focusing on execution, particularly cutting and engraving. This simple yet elegant bottle is typical of their understated, somewhat old-fashioned style. In the later 1960s, the brothers produced an innovative series of plates with abstract engraving.
