Glass vessels of this type are documented in Das Böhmische Glas 1700-1950, Band VI (Art Deco - Moderne). Many pieces came as a result of the relationship between the glass making school in Novy Bor and the firm of Oertel.
When I first tried to identify this vase, I actually thought it might be Loetz - there is a very similar shape and sized pattern in the Series III section of the "Musterschnitte", but the shape of the foot is different - too much so to be a match. I am attributing to Oertel based on four markers found on other confirmed Oertel examples - the triangles around the top rim, the shape of the foot, the gold highlights on the leaf patterns, an the bottom, which is finely ground flat and polished.
