Just been browsing as you do and noticed that Carl Hosch, Haida, also has a couple of this type of vase. In the 1912 catalogue, Tafel 195 items 5102 and 5108 (page 35 of the download). Item 5108 is very similar. Catalogue download made available by the Corning Museum:

There is some information on the Carl Hosch business here.  I just looked it up because I thought I recalled reading in Truitt's Bohemian Glass book that Hosch bought in items from various glass makers:

 It's a bit of a minefield with the use of descriptors.  I think of Bohemian glass as ' who made it and who decorated it?'. Loetz made for other makers, so did Josephinenhutte as far as I know.  And many makers supplied to the distributors.  Then there are the glass schools.  Trying to get to grips with the 'middlemen' has eluded me.  I have to look them up every time to ensure I've got the structure right - i.e. maker, or maker and decorator, distributor, overseas agent/seller'    I still have to look at a map to see where a particular glassmaker was based complicated by the difference in German name for a region and the Czech name.  Truitts has been an invaluable book from that perspective.

Thanks Ekimp, another excellent Corning download, I'll put it in my collection for future reference  :). The 5108 does look similar but could be by one of several makers. Interestingly, I see further down there are examples of "Mary Gregory" glass.

Yes, a useful resource. What strikes me when looking through catalogs is the amount of glass produced, and how similar lots of it is between companies and regions, especially drinking glasses.

M, I think I might have to add the Truitts book to the list :)
