Possibly Walsh Walsh Mother of Pearl, hopefully Bernard or Nigel will be able to confirm.

Yes, Walsh mother of pearl.   And it's not opalescent, but a very thin layer of opal glass, probably a lampshade glass, cased in clear crystal.   The whole piece was iridised as a final stage to complete the mother of pearl effect before breaking off the pontil rod.
