You couldn't make it like that, not without a great deal of difficulty. In fact I think striped would be impossible. Pressed glass is almost always mono-colour unless part of it's been reheated. There are exceptions but they're rare.

Looks clear to me....?

Keith

Not to me.  The colour is the same in the thin parts as it is in the ribs but looks slightly lighter due to different glass thickness.
