I don't think that this is Bristol Green I'm afraid. In my experience the colour is far more intense than this.

Your vase/glass is transparent green and 8" tall - too big for a traditional ale glass, but is feasable for cider or lemaonade (sometimes also referred to as lager glass); equally well it looks like a small vase!

So that was helpful  ::) :huh:

Had you mentioned you had six, I wouldn't have mentioned vases at all ;)

No idea who did them, but they look like pilsner glasses for drinking beer on St. Patrick's Day.  :chky:

Colour is close the the Bristo Green range produced by Webb in the 1970s'
