Hi
It is a Vasart vase(V009). Not all Vasart was signed. The V009 is the catolouge number from F Andrews web site Ysart Glass.

Hi Kieran
That shape is commonly referred to as " thistle", I have one in my collection and is one of favourite Vasart shaped vases.

Personally, I love both the shape and colors of this piece of glass. It is a real beauty.
