Hello and welcome.  :)
This is certainly going to get some others here very excited. I'm getting out the popcorn and waiting to hear what they will say.
This is older than my area, but a beautiful piece.
I think the glass the enamelling is on might be called girasol.

Girasol if it is of Italian origin I think Sue, this vase looks to have a purple tint especially the handles which is different.

How tall is the vase Jody? A photo of the base would be good too please. Would tend to agree it has the look of one of the Bohemian makers.

 :) That's my thing learned for today, so I can switch off now. Thanks, John. ;D
I did notice the purple tint, but was totally unsure if it was supposed to be there or if it might even be sun purpled. It's not just on the handles - I can see a tinge of it on top of a "roll" on the neck.
