Just found out the mark is acid-etched c1926 - 1950. It is free formed and 19.5cm tall with vertical strips/ribs.

Hi,

This is pattern number 26853 out of a range of pieces that were blown, but with the aid of moulds - in this case to produce the ribbing. This is illustrated in Stuart catalogues 48 and 50. No 48 is mid 1930's.
