Hi Stew,
Your vase is not Czech, but Italian.  I believe it's marked Fidenza Italy on the base, though I am unable to tell you more about the company or designer.

I seem to recall that Anik is correct with this comment  -  I had one but gave it away some time ago and now forget exactly what is on the base.      Oddly, Pamela still shows this in line 24 amongst the 'unknowns' here.....  http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/
so was perhaps Fidenza not the maker??
