Hello Gilead, and welcome  :)  a photo of the base and and your location (England, America, Australia) may help someone to identify it for you.

Hi Lustroussstone
                        Thank you for taking time to have a look, i was speaking to some one today whom said it might be Carnival Glass? if you manage to find it in the cat's that would be loverly bye for now,
                                                                                     Gilead

Not carnival glass. There simply isn't any iridescence in evidence.
