Thought this was Empoli but...

...it has a rough pontil.

Not obvious from picture but there are controlled bubbles within the glass.

Any thoughts on maker?
Many thanks, Anthony

Empoli verde, nice example. Maker would be Toso Bagnoli or Vetreria Empoli - there are several other companies. The ground and polished! pontil is just right.

 I posted much the same question a while back (2008) and got the same answer from Ivo -  consistent and accurate as usual.  Here's what mine looked like -

I think mine is in a box somewhere in my garage right now - preparing to move house, but from my post of 4 years ago I wrote that it was 18" tall and 5.5" wide.
Interesting what you say about a stopper Keith.  I hadn't noticed any sign of a stopper mark on the rim of mine - I must look again when I've moved and unpacked, likely to be months down the line I suspect.
