I still can't place it but it does remind me a bit of my Ruckl vase in the finish, very flat.  I do wonder if it is Czechoslovakian.  Sorry I can't help more but I've never seen another like it.  It might be good to have a photo that is side on so you can see how the foot is applied.  Is the foot applied to the vase base?  or is the vase hollow right down to the foot?

Odd, foot almost looks hollow and applied, is the foot open inside? In which case it is not very likely applied.
