or German.... The vase is 'Luxor' by August Walther & Sohne. You should be able to find it in the 1934 Walther catalogue
 :)

Interestingly some versions of this vase turn up with 'Belge' or 'Fait en Belgique' marks. I believe it is as yet unknown whether a Belgian firm also made the design, or whether Walther added spurious marks to help sales in the Belgian market. I think this has been discussed before on the board - a search for Walther Luxor should bring up some more info...

It is intriguing how often similarities pop-up between Czech and Belgian glass, I suspect it must have something to do with all the Sudeten glassmakers kicked out of Czechoslovakia after WW2.

How about this one! Lots of similarities and differences, but fundamentally the same concept. Did you check the 34 catalogue Malcom, I presume it is on PK site.
