I bought this vase a couple of years ago, but have not been able to track it down. Just from the style I would guess at Bohemian and early 20th C.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Thanks for that pointer. Indeed it looks to be from the Iricape Glass 2015 collection.

The web site says the glass is hand blown in a small glass studio in the Bohemian region, in the Art Nouveau style, and not by Iricape Glass itself. It is well made and demonstrates considerable skill. Anyone know which studio actually made it?
