Just bumped into this old thread- wanted to say I believe these are from Estonian Tarbeklaas. The colouring is very typical. I think the design is called ASTER.

Interesting, px...  To be honest, Estonia would have never crossed my mind.

I found an Estonian antiques site with these vases and other glass:   http://www.eantiik.com/products/klaas/tarbeklaas

The Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design also gives an interesting history of Estonian glass: http://www.etdm.ee/en/muuseum/klaasikogu/

Well done, px!  :)

Thank you px for finding the id - great sleuthing
 and Anik for posting the links :)

I've seen a number of vases on there that I recognise and will now know where they were made.
I'd been searching for a green vase a friend has, that has similar pulls but unfortunately that isn't on there, so the search continues.

Thanks px and Anik for the great info! :)
And like m I did recognize some pieces on that site which I have seen in the past, and had wondered if they might be Czech.

As the Tarbeklaas pieces seem to be nicely made and well documented (designer, date, range) I think their output will probably be a collectible of the future...

px, thanks for a really unexpected attribution. It's certainly solved a few problems for me.

And thanks to Anik for following up with two very useful links.

According the Estonian version of Wikipedia, Maks Roosma, the founder of the Estonia art glass,  studied in Czechoslovakia before WW II.  I wonder if he maintained contact after the war, as a few of the pieces in Anik's links look influenced by Skrldovice. I suppose, given the geographical location of Estonia, Aseda or Magnor could also be the influences.
