I see the similarity. However, I can't see what's in the base of the piece. Are there any bubbles or colour in there?

The shape and slightly twisted stand remind me of those Novy Bor vases from the 1970s, which come in all sorts of colours

That unpolished base seems unusual for Czech glass, though...

Thank you for your replies David and Michael.

There are no bubbles, just few splashes of colour (difficult to distinguish as whole vase is dark amber).

It could be Novy Bor, as Michael suggested - the vase has a gently twisted bottom and is similar in shape to these 1970s vases.

I think Michael's Novy Bor is a much stronger possibility that Skrdlovice, particularly Jelinek. Good find.
