      agree that this does appear to be a Tiffin #16256 Poppy Vase

      Just a couple of details - the decoration on this piece, with the tiny glass beads over painted areas, is called "coralene" - it didn't hold up well over time, and it's pretty common for there to be damaged areas; looks like much of it here is in decent shape. The red version of this vase is much harder to find than the black ones.

      I think this would have been made in the 1920s. Tiffin was originally one of the U.S. Glass plants - I can't see the label too well, but you might see if it could be a U.S. Glass label (should be a shield with the letters USGC.) That would make it easier to nail down a date.

      USGC label yes indeed that is what it is
