This is Loetz tango. Originating in 1914 tango glass was very popular all over the world until the mid 30's. The glass is usually cased opaque glass trimmed in a black, white or cobalt application color. There are many variations but the classic shapes were produced in the most color combination. The glass is marked with an oval acid stamp "CZECHO-SLOVAKIA". The last image is a display case from the Passau glass museum in Germany. I think the beauty of the glass is the simplicity of shape with the boldness of the color.
