Possible Czech vase and dish - ID = Brabec for Rosice, SU

Chunky green vase.
Parallelogram cross-section.
Surface pattern of indented lenses interspersed with raised points.
"Birdbath" base.
8.5" / 21.5 cm tall, 5" / 12.5 cm across rim at widest point.

Possible "Boule" pattern dish on chrome stand.  Glows under UV. 5" diameter.

I thought that Boule had wider gaps between the blobs, but maybe I'm thinking of Candlewick. Anyway, Boule is the attribution given to this in McConnell's Miller's 20th C Antiques.

Grateful for any help.
Thanks,
Chris

Thanks very much, Pete. 
Since it's around 8.5" tall, I imagine it must have been designated as the 5122/210, /215 or /220.  And if you know that there's a /180, that means I have another one to look out for :-)
Cheers,
Chris

I have 2 of these both 18cm. I didn't know they came any larger. I am seeing this design being called Barolac.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-SKLO-Union-Barolac-Art-Glass-Vase-Jiri-Brabec_W0QQitemZ330146025925. Is there some connection with the 1930's Barolac Opalescent Deco items ? Design-wise I'm just not seeing it. Ed.

Ed, it is not about design, it was about marketing.
