Sorry, but I am just beginner regarding glass. All what I know about VUUS is from Helmut Ricke's book 'Czech Glass 1945 - 1980'. From what is in the book, VUUS  "...focused its attention on research and development tasks for national enterprises..."  and further "...As demands for research activities gradually decreased, the institute's undertakings shifted to the production sphere... " . Based on information from Ricke's book I would vote for Rocco's idea about the vase being made in VUUS as a "role model"  and then widely produced in Chribska glassworks.

There is another interesting information in Helmut Ricke's book regarding VUUS : "...The research institute collaborated with the ÚBOK.."  (Center for Home and Fashion Culture in Prague).
According to Jiri Suhajek CV on the internet, he worked in ÚBOK glass department as a designer from 1979 to 1994. Could there be a possibility that the design for the vase was developed during the time of collaboration of ÚBOK with VUUS and that the similar design was used for his later work?
