I think this glass was produced in Mexico and is only a couple of years old.

if the pontil mark is ring shaped this would be a Biot glass (check for the mark). If it is broken off and melted over, think recent India or Mexico.

This looks exactly like the one I have here in my hand just a diff colour.  Biot glass works shows it in their catalogue stemmed glass.
