Help to ID this octagon shaped vase please. My first thought was Czech (Sklo Union) but had no luck finding another example. I also thought it was very similar in design to so Finnish Riihimaki but I still favour Czech.

Height 8" or 20.5 cm and weighs 1830 gm

Thanks Roy

Not very Czech with that bottom - could it be Skruf?

Thank you Robbo for the ID .

I was not too far away then in the end, I did think of Tamara Aladin as I do have one of her tall vases in the yellow uranium .

Thanks again Roy
