I have to disagree with Michelle. The dimples are wrong, the colour is wrong and I would say the shape is wrong (although there are various shapes). See here for a small Borske Sklo vase http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,26851.0.html

I might look at the Netherlands for that colour.

Close but no cigar. For this Item I'd really look in the direction of Czechoslovakia or Germany - or even Belgium!

I cannot confirm Borské, bottom and colour make some doubts.

Ivo, with that colour I was thinking Leerdam or Boom? But you would know more than anyone.
