thanks - was that technique used in Czechoslovakia?  I know it was in France, but just wondered whether it was a peculiarly French technique.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Maybe 1930's Phoenix Glass.

While Model is a possibility I have not seen mermaids that tally. There are other short lived French makers for this type of glass and somewhere I have a catalogue from another. It is surprising that this one has eluded an id so far... but the design of the top is significant. There are some Czech similar and also French that used similar, it has always struck me as the top of a container/bottle works. There are some of those that ventured into decorative glass in that period.

This type of stain was used elsewhere but mostly France.

Had a look through my resources but sadly I must have remembered wrongly as I can't find this model. While as Frank says the coloured stain/ patina was mostly a French technique, Inwald at least used similar applied colours. Several Barolac pieces are known with this effect -- for example the 'Loss of the Revenge' vase shown in Manley has a green stain, while I've had floral vases of theirs with various coloured stains.
