It's known as the "Drapery" vase and was made by Hermanova hut from 1957. Pattern no. 20036, designer Vaclav  Hanus. This is the smaller size. There is also a jardiniere. Info Hi Sklo, Lo Sklo by Mark Hill

The vase is also shown in the 1983 Heřmanova Huť catalogue on the CD with Marcus Newhall's book Sklo Union Art Before Industry: 20th Century Czech Pressed Glass so was in production for a long time. The vase came in 3 heights: 15cm, 20cm, 25cm so yours at 8" (i.e. 20cm) is actually the middle-sized one.  :thup:
