Any idea what this signature is and who made it?

It seems to say 'Gozo', but it is a design that I have not seen from them before. Maybe I am misreading it.

I have a small stopperless Gozo PB, with paper label, I suspect the mark is under that, because a bit sticks out, and a fully flat polished base that looks a little bit like the vase shown.

But the strapping is far more random. The base colour is a royal blue enamel over clear glass.
This vase shown looks more like Phoenician, to me. I'm never really sure with Gozo.  ???

It's similar to Rindskopf "Amethyst Loop".      http://kralik-glass.com/frametemplate.html

It is by the Australian glass artist Sean O'Donoghue. A google search will reveal others like it. His signature is quite variable, so don't expect to find an exact match for that.

The example here confirms style and signature:

Brewster is correct - Sean has many signaturesa but this is very common.  He also produced "dark" rather than blueish iridescence. 

You can rely on his attribution of Australian glass.
