From another thread, Dirk has found some information  that says the Heckert Cypern range blanks were produced by Josephinenhutte whether  they are decorated or undecorated versions, and references Stefania Zelasko's new book on Fritz Heckert (I'll find the exact source and add it in a mo)
The link Dirk gave to the site where the information came from ( a seller called Neuwirth) also shows an image of a vase in blue selling as Fritz Heckert cypern, which is the same as Christine's gourd vase.
see here for Dirk's message
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,52456.msg297779.html#msg297779

So based on that information, Christine's gourd vase would be designed by Fritz Heckert with the blank produced by Josephinenhutte :)

Coming back to my original gold iridescent small vase with non-iridised handles :)

I believe this is my missing link -
This is identified as Fritz Heckert :)
http://www.thegildedcurio.com/item-Heckert-920.html
and
described as 'iridescent two handled miniature glass vase flowers Fritz Heckert.  This piece is lightly iridescent'

It's not identical in form, but it is the same colour, the same light iridescence, the same type of iridescence, a similar size (miniature) and has non iridised handles and a similar neck.  I think that's a definite yes to Fritz Heckert  produced by Josephinehutte or at the very least, produced by Josephinenhutte with unknown designer. (See Dirk's comments re Josephinenhutte producing Cypern for FH above)

 I can rest now  ;D

M, it is good that you have found a "missing link" for your vase.

But can an attribution in just one site be taken as a proven identity? That is not to say that I have any reason to query the entry in the GildedCurio site, but I am always wary of just one "missing link" being actual proof of anything, especially when an attribution has no comments to back it up.

No it can't, not for public scrutiny. 
I will continue to look for a referenced match for Alisa's piece (and mine).
But I'm happy with my attribution for me (which for 18months and 5 pages of thread I haven't been  ;D )

Just to add another thing, Alisa's picture blow up really well and the glass has the same watery teardrop bubbles randomly spaced as mine does.  You can see it mostly on the neck.
