Could you give a little more information please when posting for ID.  Measurements and even weight can help.

This is very pretty.  Looking at the photo of the base, am I imagining a very faint signature between the four dots around eleven o'clock (imagining the photo as a clock face)?

Hello, I have not noticed a signature. I will take one more look.

It is 13cm high and diameter is 16cm. Weight: 2349g

I have seen something like this by Glasfachschule Zwiesel ( Germany ) but then there should be a signature.

I should have added to previous comment, that it also helps if you include information you have already found, and maybe what you have ruled out as well.

Try rubbing some talc over the base......it can help bring up difficult to find signatures.

I can see the similarity on the eBay item

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vase-pfauenauge-Decor-glasfachschule-Zwiesel-Zop-Handmade-Signed-G956-/152868385028

First thought was yours looks "finer".  On closer inspection of photos there appear to be a lot of bubbles in yours.......not completely controlled.  If this was considered a fault then it may have been sold as a second, and not signed. 

Also interesting that Glasfachschule translates as Glass Technical College.  If that makes it a possible student piece and more likely a one off, you may have difficulty finding an identical one.

This is such fun!

Just came across some pieces online by Tom Philabaum, and they reminded me of your piece.  Not an attribution, just a suggestion of another possible contender.

Have you found out anything else?
