I am hoping someone can shed more light on this unusual art deco style pressed glass vase i acquired recently.

The vase is square in section, tapering towards the base and decorated with textured panels moulded with overlapping ovals. It is a very nicely moulded and well finished piece; both the top and foot rims have been ground and polished. The sides of the vase have been acid matted with the exception of the textured panels which have a bright finish. There is a flower frog which sits on a small lip running around the top of the vase. Colour is a golden amber.

Vase measures approximately 205mm high by 100 mm square at the rim.  I have a feeling it might be French, though the vase appears completely unmarked.

Thank you
