Looks like the flask second from left here, minus the stopper: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-11827

Here is another shown in that catalogue: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/ScandinavianGlass#5543252341222779074

Sorry, I should have been clearer, they were originally from Kastrup, so Danish. Here is the thread where Peter provided the link: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,27609.msg150758.html#msg150758

Finding another stopper will be tricky and I suspect a bucket load of luck may be required. The best source may turn out to be from another example that is in poor condition, maybe one that is heavily waterstained.....  Assuming that a replacement would fit without a little fettling.

In the thread I linked to Bryn shows his example and the stopper is clear not blue.
