Hello and welcome to the gmb, PJ.  :)

The colour looks like citrine - one often associated with ZBS. I'd think Czech would be the first area to investigate.
Cheers, Sue (M)

If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?

Thanks Sue

Although the colour is similar, the ZBS pieces look more organic in form whereas this is more geometric and is cut glass

The closest match I can find style-wise and in colour is with Aimo Okkolin cerium yellow pieces - Google these for images

Mysterious...

Cirtrine really is a Czech thing. There are several companies doing this colour, and they include ZBS . Not just organic, also cut. The other one is Desna. And Moser is big on this colour which they developed in 1928.

I've had an etched/engraved piece in citrine, (just a thin glass vase) and recently found a pressed-but-organic and deco-looking bit,.

Might be Moser.

Looking at the piece in question, Moser does look a likely contender. It's rather classy.
(I only put those 2 pics in, because they're not ZBS, just citrine.)

Many thanks for all the input everyone. The colour does indeed look like a perfect match for Citrine so it may well be Czech

I've not been able to fing pictures of anything similar so far.

It is a rather beautiful little thing so I'm curious to ID it

It's a bit quiet here just now - but don't give up hope. It can sometimes take years to get an id, although I'm sure this vase won't take that long. We just need the right person to come along and see it.
It's really nice, looks very well made.  :)
