Finally !!! ok, not a definite id ...sorry to disappoint  ;D but I have finally found a vase that I came across ages ago and couldn't find again to post.
This one was sold in 2005 via Quittenbaum as WMF IKora and it has the two colours effect with one graduating over the other a bit  like my amber over the green.  It also has the similar pulled netting and foot as mine.
http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/1266855
sold as 'WMF, Geislingen. 'Ikora'-vase, c. 1935. ' brown and blue. 16.9cm high
Looks a very similar shape to the one Dirk found earlier in the thread but that was 17.4cm
http://www.ebay.de/itm/281049856301?nma=true&si=W0QLHC6M8t7e3lWMYOmDERZ2mNA%3D&rt=nc&_trksid=p4340.l2557&orig_cvip=true#ht_500wt_1288
and I've not been able to match that shape in the book.
All thoughts much appreciated
Dirk, I've not had time to re look at the other pieces yet but will do some close comparisons :)

Not sure if I ever threw these pics into battle:

M, I strongly suspect that the WMF attribution is right, but Iīm having problems with classifying
them as Ikora. The book doesnīt show this pattern and itīs both distinctive and common enough
it should have found a mention there. I hence suspect it might be a different, completely autarkic
range, like e.g. those mica spiral-pattern bowls, those small cut vases etc.. 
What do you think?

Ivo, interesting to see this technique by a later (I presume) maker. Anyway - how is it done BTW?
Threading? Nets?

Threaded, combed, clear cased I think.  My example was from a small unknown glass maker in Sicily and had pewter decor stuck to it - not quite sure why.

Thanks for the explanation!

Dirk, Ivo, thanks :)

Ivo nice colours in that vase:)  there is difference in again in the neatness of the way the lattice/net decor is done, my lamp and the vases and Dirk's bowl are very neatly done by comparison to other maker's pieces I've seen with this type of decor.
Dirk I don't know the mica bowls or cut vases??should I know them?
I can't recall reading about them at all  ::)

Oh my!! Look here
http://www.artvalue.com/auctionresult--wmf-geislingen-20-germany-vase-2749596.htm
Sold by Quittenbaum in 2010 Tue 26 October lot 645
Is this the same shape as the one Dirk linked to and the one I just found id'd as WMF brown and blue?
Do we have lift-off  ;D

Edited - oops no, comparing shapes it's not the same I don't think and neither is the foot.
What is interesting is that I've come across another vase similar to my green with red splotches decor sold by Quittenbaum and on that one they make it clear it is WMF Geislingen (ATTR.) i.e. attributed.  So I do wonder whether the net vase they sold, are they sure it is WMF then.  Spurious conclusion I know  :)
Darn

oh yes, I remember your bowls now  and yes I have seen those on Glaskilian but the cut ones don't float my boat so I've not remembered them  :-[
Thanks Dirk
Oddly enough I put WMF Geislingen rather than WMF Ikora in the search and that is how I found the net blue and brown vase again.

I found a brown combed lattice vase like my blue/green one with a Made in Czechoslovakia label

Unfortunately I neglected to get a picture of the vase
