not wishing to be negative, but think you will need to post a picture - or two - in order to encourage peoples' interest and response.     
Better still if you are able to include a close up shot of the signature you mention. :)
Thank you all (m, Roberta, Kimo, John, Ken) for your help, greatly appreciated!

This seems to be a real ID challenge ;)

First, I am totally open for the idea that it is a new piece.
But I am still wondering for what kind of market such a small, dainty yet technically complex piece would have been produced; if just to mimic Art Nouveau, why not iridize the whole thing, and choose a less excentric colour?

I think I would never be able to tell if the wear on the base could be added deceitfully; to me it looks natural. It is found - in varying amount - on the areas where the vase sits on. If that hints on older production or not...

And thanks for all the links (and pics of beautiful glass).
Four-dimpled shapes seem to have been extremely popular in early 20th century Bohemian production -- found in so many Kralik and Lötz ranges.
But I couldn't find an exact shape match either.
Those S&W-attribution pieces seem to be much thicker glass.

Haha, I sold my conch shell to the USA. The "ruby" isn't going to be ruby though. It's a sort of orange
Here's the stuff I've got hold of, though Sue has the amber vases and the conch is in the USA

These are indeed Pokals, general use showpieces.  They are not suitable for apothecary use as those would be made from dark glass to protect the  contents.  They would also have a more efficient foot print, i.e straight sides.
