ID confirmed: Amethyst coloured vases from Belgium?

After years of searching, a reader from our website has produced the golden tip which has led to a fascinating conclusion.

The optiek vases under discussion were not made at Boom.
They were not made at Braine-Le-Comte either.

A recent catalogue which surfaced at a flea market clearly identifies the manufacturer as Doyen, a small factory at Havre-Ville near Mons in Belgium.

I've added the new information to the pages at
Dutch and Flemish 20th Century Factory Glass

in any case it predates 1968 when they merged with Boussu to form Manuverbel.
