Hi and welcome to the board. Can you add a picture of the bottom as well please? We can tell quite a bit about how a vase is made by seeing the base. :)

Great colour and pattern,
maybe not great age, base would be good, any sign of age wear to the bottom?
Cheers
Andy

I agree with Andy on all counts. In addition it's interesting to note the construction of these  viz a very prominent mold line around the centre as well as one just below the short neck, in addition to at least two vertical ones! The mid boggles as to how these were exactly put together altho I expect not so, for the mold experts here, namely Adam D, Glen and Bernard.
Possibilities for maker could include any of the larger Empoli or Italian factories in other regions and Pasabahce or other Turkish manufacturers. Beyond that any well equipped modern glass factory in any country.
The Pasabahce website www.pasabahce.com.tr/en/ is currently under construction. Try  keeping an eye on Ebay for similar items using keywords Italy, Italian, Empoli, Sisecam or Pasabahce plus colours turquoise or teal.
