I have taken the best I can, also some true measurements. Base width 7.5 cm. rim width 6.5 cm and height is 11 cm. Again I apologise for the poor pics my camera is only 2.3 mp. Thanks for all your help and replies. Sue.

Thanks for the additional images. Based on the rim finish and darkness of colour we can very safely rule out Holmegaard. Even on very thick glass Holmegaard's 'Smoke' colourway tends to fairly light and transparent.

This is a piece of similar size and thickness, a 'Skotland' series glass by Per L├╝tken, 1961:
