Probably uranium glass.

Hi Steve, snap! http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-536  - it's English, Sowerby F2583 (identified for me by Glen here on the board), and yours is possibly uranium glass - mine is and it glows like mad under a blacklight - the green glow in the pic is the fizz from the flash.  (I'll leave it to Christine to explain uranium... it's her passion!)  8)

1930s Steve. Glen's CD Book on Sowerby Glass (vol2) shows the vase in a catalogue from the late 1930s and a Pottery Gazette advert dated 1936, but it's not in the 1933 catalogue on the CD, so  it has to have been introduced between 1933 and 1936. It came in flint (i.e. clear), amber, blue and green, and there was a matching flower holder available, and some were sold with a black glass plinth as well to make a three-piece set.

Details of Glen's Sowerby CDs are in the Glass Book Forum here:  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,19148.0.html and are well-worth obtaining. :)
