This is a wonderful piece of glass. I am not sure about the age because many of the old Czechoslovakian molds and designs have been "recycled" over the years.
I came across this very interesting publication: https://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/aktuelles/pdf/pk-2010-2w-stopfer-tschech-pressglas.pdf
If you scroll down, you will find a very similar vase designed by Schroetter in the mid 1930's.
I have seen a very similar vase in a different colour described as "in the style of Moser" and also with a reference to Inwald.
(There is a connection of Schroetter, Inwald and Moser, but I could not link my vase to it. Also, I lost the link with the explanation)
This information came from: https://www.sklo-union.eu/ (scroll down to the 12th "shelf")
Rudolf Schröter, 1930-1958, Rudolfova Hu?. Pattern number: 11558/A
This one refers to a 1980's catalogue: http://sklo-union-glass.com/cms/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&virtuemart_product_id=261&virtuemart_category_id=12
Here is a reprint of an old catalogue listed on Ebay, showing this style of vase on the last page: https://www.ebay.com/itm/233601448088?hash=item3663bb3898:g:ESEAAOSwUSlezq70
I think that my vase is not one of the original 1930's vases. It could be, however, from the 1950's or 1980's. I don't have the knowledge to make that determination and I am not sure how accurate my findings are.
My vase is in great condition, except for some very minor wear on the bottom. There are no visible mold lines, and all edges are defined but smooth. The vase is heavy and stands about 10 inches tall.
Thanks for looking:)
