Big Green Glass Vase, Help With Idenification Please.

Hi, it's me again. I've just been to all the charity shops in my area and I came back with this 13 inch vase still intact.  :o

Everybody seemed keen on kicking it and letting doors slam into it.  :(

It seems to be a floor vase (handy! does not require a table!) and at the very least it is well finished on the underside.  I would think Italian, maybe IVV or one of the other Empoli companies and quite recent.  Could also be Romanian or Polish - but most of all, useful.
