I  thought the marks were more likely to be 1930s or so to be honest and I think Heckert was closed by then. However they certainly did a lovely iridescent finish with a light minute crackle to it and given that, I thought I might be wrong about the marks dates.  It might be worth finding out when France demanded export marks on glass/items?

The shape and colours make me think of Theresienthal for some reason but I can't tell you why.  I always associate Theresienthal with more 'feminine' glass designs and colours for some reason, less 'sturdy' shapes and designs, more airy. 

It's hard to see your photographs and the detail of the iridescence clearly .  Can you add a photo in different light?  They both look quite 'bright and modern' in those pics.  Are the colours that new looking?
I think Poschinger was also a good shout as a possible.
