Ummm The plot thickens :huh:
Its close, but mine looks a much better quality ;D. The bubbles are finner on mine & as i say the ones in the base are pin pricks.  A friend thought Nazeing due to the colour. But i have not found anything on those site either.
Still i will keep on looking.
Thanks a lot
Dave

Purely a guess, but looks Czech-like  to me.

Another off-the-cuff guess is Erickson.  I know very little about them, but do know they did a lot of straight-line controlled bubble glass in simple, modern shapes.  Just an idea.
