I'm curious about this identification as the linked one on CW being from the 'Floret' range at Harrach. 

The one I've found in the Passau book band IV Das Bohmische Glas is opalescent with a slight yellowy tinge as far as I can see and has a flower pattern on it and a crimped rim - it looks like a Walsh Walsh opalescent vase.  There is quite a difference in the design of them, although they are both opalescent glass with a pattern on.

I wonder was all the opalescent range called Floret? It's just that 'Floret' seems to imply 'floral' and the 'maze' design vases don't look very floral. I don't have the Harrach book only the Passau with the floral vase in it.

Looking at the Harrach book -sadly only the Czech version-  there is a reproduction of a page probably an original design page with 12 different such opal patterns and the page is called 'floret' so it looks to be a range.

Thank you for looking and confirming it Mike :) 
I'm trying hard not to buy books that aren't in English at the moment.  I have many in German and my German is just not good enough (understatement lol) to get all the understanding without having to use translate ... which then gives me very odd translations and so I never know whether I'm getting the right explanation or not.  I definitely couldn't manage one in Czech.
