Curiously enough it seems to have colour streaks like ikora, as well as tiny little evenly spread bubbles - a bit like your powder box. If you google johnolith glass it is the third or fourth hit...

 :) yes that was one of my two, 'oh my, look how similar that is' moments last night regarding Johnolyth.

I can't think that my box is a Hantich piece, but the way it's made is the same possibly.
 
Just in case anyone googles it is Johnolyth with a y not an i before the th  I think.
This one has the most similarities

pic of my box attached

They are outside chances but still worth investigating  a bit I think.
p.s. did you see the two posts I made on the Herringbone lamp? - Dirk had found a herringbone vase that was attributed as WMF same pattern and foot as my lamp.

It looks like the images are layed out on the marver which must be incredibly difficult to achieve as the piece would not cope with much manipulation thereafter. Not to mention the problem of picking it up in one go.

And also the weight of the glass on the punty whilst doing so  :o 

Check out the close up of the dragonfly vase - gorgeous.
http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/an-ernst-hantich-co-johnolyth-4606145-details.aspx?intObjectID=4606145

From what I read, designed by Karl John for Hantich and Co Haida.
I would like one ....  ;D

I've found another that is a very similar shape to an internally decorated vase I have, where I've had a slight query over the id of mine (currently id'd as by Ernest Leveille).  But the shape is not quite identical.  I was idly wondering whether Hantich might have made other internally decorated vases apart from this range.
Unfortunately info is somewhat hard to come by.

I own one - didn't realise till 5 minutes ago :)

It is very thick & heavy, full of internal bubbles & looks like it is painted, but it is in between the layers of glass along with the signature which is on the base

and I started this thread having id'd yours :)
Thank you so much for adding some details.  I appreciate it.
I've only ever seen one in real life (seen after I started this thread).
I love the detail on your vase and the size of the flowers.  It's beautiful.
