This seems so familiar but no luck so far finding another, it is 14cm tall with a polished pontil mark, some wear.

Any ideas?

Looks like a historicist design, the type Powell was doing, but I understand Stuart and all the other main Stourbridge factories did similar designs. The purple colour is like a Stuart colour maybe. Any ideas?

Your vase is by Wolfgang von Wersin according to this listing by the Dorotheum auction house in Vienna.  There is a source reference on that listing. It was also made in this glorious chartreuse yellow colour:

'Wolfgang von Wersin, a bowl and a knob vase, Tiroler Glashütte, Kramsach, 1924, distributed by DeWe AG
Lot No. 139-098396/0002  03.10.2018 - 15:00'

Have I missed, or messed up, something while tidying things? I have seen no yellow example in the Dorotheum listing or in either of the now-merged threads.

Fabulous flying free thank you, when searching I found several designs with prunts but never this one. The obvious mistake I made was failing to search for vase with knobs, I was of course all over vase with knops. :D

An image solely of the yellow example from the auction here:

You haven't really missed anything Kev- it is showing very green because of the uranium - the base colour is definitely yellow.
I try not to think about the colours of Chartreuse. I swallowed half a bottle of it when I was 12 and I was not very well afterwards.

Quite, it was described in the Dorotheum auction as a "knob vase".
