Hi Stew
It doesn't look like a Welz Spiraloptisch to me, the pattern isn't the same.  That's not to say that it may not turn out to be a Welz piece, if they were doing these patterned iridescent pieces, but I just don't think it is that.  If you look at the pieces on Kralik.com the patterning is very specific to all of them.
I've added a link to a curious patterned iridescent Bohemian? vase I own, which currently also has no id.

No, because it hasn't got the circles. I'll look later. Almost certainly Bohemian though

The metal frog isn't a really a clue, as metal fittings were not usually applied by the glass manufacturers.

i remember now, going to caithness glass and they were making a bowl he had the wire 'frog' and was working the glass to its size so anyone could have made it. probably the same here
