Height?  Although it doesn't look  particularly a Whitfriars colour ( is the photo representative of what it is in real life?) it may be Wuidart (but W/f made them) or perhaps S and W?  But dimensions may help

I don't know the shape, and it depends on factors including the colour tone, production techinques etc, but green optic ribbing was also used by Elis Bergh for Kosta during the early 1930s. I'm not saying this one is, but it could be another avenue to pursue....
