Hi Kim, it looks like Stuart Cascade but I'm not sure.... yours seem to have an extra bit to the pattern at the top which my Cascade pieces don't have:    http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-153 - if it is Stuart then it could well be marked - search closely across the base for a tiny acid etch mark mark. The marks are often hard to see as they can overlap the cut pattern!

This is not Stuart.
It is a moulded glass with moulded star base. Stuart will not have star moulded base even if the fushia is engraved after moulded. The rim shown indicate that it is not a cut glass vase.
Never walk away from a bargain

Agree with Ming,
Ive seen a few of these, it does appear the fuschia is etched into the moulded vase,
im not sure where theyre from, but recent production. Pretty though. Copying Stuart and similar.
