      Interesting! I know Belfor was an importer name to US/Canada but I don't know if they sourced their glass from one maker or a number of them.
      There doesn't seem to be a lot of Belfor labeled vases around, and the only other one here on CW is not a Prachen style at all.
      This one seems a bit Prachen in style. That it is spattered onto a clear ground seems right, although the spatter is not as streaky. The shape seems a bit simple I think, and Flora is usually a two colour mix. Sorry , I'm sorta thinking aloud here, and can't decide either way!
      Glass Messages Board may have an expert who can help.
      Gorgeous vase BTW!

      I received a reply off site with some interesting information:
      Belfor is an importer. Your vase was produced by Chlum u Trebone and was designed by Jan Gabrhel in the early 1970s (I believe 1973).
      Links to a catalog in a private album were also provided showing the vase.
