that looks like a possible Wiktor Berndt vase to me.
I'll have a look round and see what I can find for you.

thanks very much for your conjecture.

i was looking in the web for ┬┤Wiktor Berndt` and i found one picture,
the vase is really very similar!

did you found something or does anyone has other ideas?

My bet is on Spanish, not on Berndt. In Spain in the 1970s 1980s the technique (pioneered by Majorelle, used by Berndt later) was revived to make long drink slash Sangria services and hall lamps to go with Spanish restaurant style. The metal is course and rusty, not neatly designed as Berndt did.

I suspect that several makers have been responsible for these types of wares, they vary in quality too. I would agree that yours is not from Wiktor Berndt and Flygsfors.

There are a few more examples in this thread: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,24466.0.html follow the link towards the end of the thread for more examples again.
