thank you Jindrich, one more question, is this likely to have been designed by Josef Hospodka?  Regards

I am sorry, I am not sure with Hospodka.
It is known, that Professor Josef Michael Hospodka was actually one and only designer of this type of glass in Chribska from late fifties. Some pieces we can attribute to him directly and exactly following  information given in Glasrevue.

Probably the most pieces did not design Hospodka personaly, glassmakers simply "free" followed his ideas and shapes.
This vase, however is not from old production but rather new from late 90ties.

See what says Chribska catalogue from 1968:

"The character of the present production of glassworks was estabilished by J. Hospodka whose artistic outlook was based on the off-hand shaping of glass. His ideas are now realized by scores of  young glassmakers."

Thanks again, that is very clear.
