Sorry Paul,
I cannot help with this, and certainly this does not appear in my database of more than 4500 items of post-war Czechoslovakian production.
You should be wary of the bird-bath base-well, as this could also apply to glass from VLG Lausitz, Ankerglas, VEB Sachsenglas Ottendorf-Okrilla, and Zabkowice, and thus is a feature of pressed glass production, rather than a clear indication that an item must be Sklo Union.
Regards,
Marcus

Thanks for the reply Marcus.. maybe in a year or so I will develop more
of an eye for the glass I am trying to collect, still the vase was a bargain for £1.00
Thanks again Paul.

I know Marcus I do get lucky sometimes.. it was a purchase from a local charity shop
and is a nice vase, maybe one will appear someday with a label fingers crossed... I do
like to find recognised examples. Paul

Again, a couple of these featured in Graham's recent exhibition at King's Lynn
- Amber
- Grey/green
Hmmm...
