I think there has been a discussion on this or something very similar elsewhere on the board - Czech as a possibility was questioned I think.
I saw one similar a couple of weeks ago and tried to search for the thread on it but couldn't find it. Hopefully someone will pop along who remembers some key words to search for, and link it for you.
I love the vase.  I can't think why I didn't buy the one I saw  :'(

They've been mentioned a few times on the board and I can't find the earlier topics either!  :cry: I'll go have another rummage....

This piece is not Czech/Czechoslovakian. This one can be seen only at UK eBay, often wrongly attributed to Sklo Union.
No, not ours, that is all what I can to say.

thank you for the information Jindrich.  Perhaps in my subconscious I remembered it wasn't Czech so hesitated to buy the one I saw :-\ - that's unlike me, as normally I just buy what I like ;D.

Ivo's piece was a dark green, but the picture has gone. The handles had only two holes and looked like the underside of a nose. :)

Here's another one, but it's blue.

Funny enough, I have just seen one listed on ebay described as 'sklo batwing vase' , which is the same shape as my one.
