Anyway, I was interested in the resemblence between your vase and the brochure page I posted earlier. I've got a rough date on it, but absolutely no clue who made them. Apart from, probably Bohemian.....

Yes, I've just looked at that again, Cathy, and I think you're right!   :D So someone might well have saved up and got 'my' vases with their tea coupons! :lol:  

I've taken the liberty of posting the page here, too : as I am sure there is a connection  :shock:

Hopefully someone will be able to enlighten us!

Here are 3 green to peach pieces
all attributed to Hobbs Brockunier so maybe I'm wrong about Bohemian

Peter, the seller is wrong in all three cases,  not one of these pieces are Hobbs, Brockunier.

Hobbs' Rubina Verde was ruby glass plated over canary.  It was not a heat-sensitive glass.
