Your blue urn shaped vase is pressed glass made by Aug. Walther, Saxonia, shape FONTAINEBLEAU (page 89 of their catalogue 1934)
Very nice, especially as you've got it complete with its plinth!  :)

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)

Thank you Pamela, specially for the resource too.

It was purchased in India around that period by my maternal great grand mother.

Regards,
Praveen.
