i can read 'ARCTEK something which makes no sense at all to me - it may be a retail label. The ship is not Scandinavian by the look of it. Question is, is it blown and panel cut, or is it pressed?  Is there any marking?  I could imagine this is one of the products from Atlantis/ MG Marinha Grande. But I could be barking up the wrong mast, of course.

There are no marks, just that odd label, before the letter A it looks like an upside down V if that gives a hint to maybe a country or something? I will get pics from all sides and post  maybe that will tell you the process used to make it, because honestly I have no idea, but I am willing to learn.

Good, the inital character maybe a cyrillic L and it looks as if  CTEK is part of the word STEKLO. That is the Russian and Slovenian word for "Glass".  But still no wiser - just speculating here.
