At auctions, they reach dizzying sums
On auction sites and advertising websites there are more and more things from the times of the Polish People’s Republic.
The famous crystals are a sensation.
They used to be in every home – confectioners, vases, ashtrays or crystal bowls, with time became a symbol of kitsch.
In recent years, however, they are coming back to favor.
Vintage style has become fashionable, and crystals and trinkets from the time of communism are more and more sought after.
Popular items can be bought for a dozen or several dozen zlotys, but rarer copies reach dizzying sums.
Collectors are able to pay a lot for them.
On the market, one of the most sought after is a glass asteroid vase that has bubbles on the surface.

He costs PLN 800 – Anna Indulska, the owner of the Vintage store, explained in the program “Good Morning TVN”.
She added that some things reach the price of several thousand zlotys.

Crystals reflect the light harder and are more transparent, have a smoother surface, but at the same time they are heavier.
