need some help with the ID of this pair of smoky grey glass vases, 22.5cm height, cut pattern, flat polished pontil base. Guess that rules out Sklo makers, possibly German / Scandinavian?

Similar to Reijmyre and Milos Filip designs, anyone know if they could be either?

Welcome to the board. Sklo just mean glass so on here we like it used accurately, but yes it does rule out most (but not all) of the Sklo Union factories, which mainly produced pressed glass.

Hi there,  thanks for the welcome and quick reply!  Have noticed that using the term 'Sklo' wrongly is contentious / inaccurate, will remember to refer as Czech / Sklo Union in future.
Any info on the Czech factories who produced blown pieces with polished pontils could come in handy in the future!
