Maker sought for long necked vaseline glass bottle

This long necked bottle measures 7.5" tall, it is pressed diagonally, it bears no markings to the base, please can anyone help ID this piece?

Not a hope, there were more glassworks producing bottles like that than almost anything else. Agewise I'd guess early 20th

Aah, but how much? It's got to be a really bright lime green and I would be surprised if either of those two bottles had uranium in them. More likely to be manganese which gives a dull green glow
