My latest. Sorry to have been “away” on a family history expedition from my armchair.
There are a number of mica posts on here but no exact matches.
I would hesitate to give an ID but other similar are Welz/Kralik/Harrach.
It is 22.5cm high.

    This is my kind of glass...may I say that it looks more Victorian than Art Deco, though? It does remind me of some Victorian pieces I have with similar pastel rainbow spatter & mica spangles...

    I am continually surprised by the victorian-ness of some 1920s stuff. I know what you mean about this one. I *think* it fits with 1920s production better than 1880s/90s.
    If you have a look at the catalogue pages in Truitt or the WVMG catalogues, there are some very victorian-looking pieces alongside high and low Art Deco pieces.
    I think the corollary would be the continuing effect of 1940s-60s design on glass today.
