Sue, i dont think this is an ashtray, there are usually palces for the cigarette to rest.
I think probably Scandi  :-\

I see lots of these around, they come in different heights, at first I thought they were 50's/60's Nuutajarvi as they produced some very similar pieces in a similar smokey green colour and the quality is good, but I'm now pretty sure most are new/newish. If it is'nt signed my best guess is that they're being made in Poland and sold widely in the UK.

I may be wrong...

Martyn.

I agree with Martyn - over the past year or so I've seen a lot of these - usually in a cinnamon brown colour and my best guess would also be current Polish production.

I've got a vague memory that a London chain of shops called 'Oliver Bonas' were selling them, which would explain why Pip and me have seen so many as thier shops are all around us. I think most of thier glass is Krosno/LSA.
