Arts and Crafts Vase, sculpted tree form

Picked up this beautiful vase at an estate sale; can someone identify anything about it or provide clues? No maker's mark that I can see.

The style looks Austrian/main land European from the period just after 1900 to the first world war. But that base is very unlike the Austrian stuff I have seen. Not sure if it is even European. The glaze is bit matt, not very shiny like most European from the period.

I think it's probably not traveled that far. If I had to guess I would say American from the 20's. A design inspired by earlier imports but with a very American late 20's glaze. Retailers often went to local potteries and got them to make versions of things they have found, they still do. I can imagine that vase very easily as a bit of early 20th century Czech glass.
