Is this vase Czech glass or Italian glass?

Any ideas on country of origin for this cased glass vase. The inside is a lighter shade of orange. Do you think it's Czech or Italian? Age?

Czech 1930s rose vase in Tango colours. Could be Rückl or Kralik - but there were other makers of similar wares as well.
It is supposed to have a metal grill on top to stick in the flowers, but very often this went into the bin with the flowers.
