It looks to be similar to the green cup with a makers mark at the bottom of the thread I linked to. I have seen this mark on several items in the past few years but am none the wiser, the Driburg possibility is interesting.

Very believable.  I have something similar which will be immediately relabelled as Driburg. The set is to show Spanish or Mexican production....

I had a talk about this mark with Mr. Baumann some weeks ago and it seems
the Driburg pieces are not marked. To his kowledge no other colours than this
dark green can be confirmed.
It seems weŽll still have to be on the look-out for another maker concerning
the pieces marked with that kneeling-rabbit-lady-mouse-thingie.

Obviously I didnŽt remember the facts about the glass colours being used correctly - sorry.
They produced in several colours - clear, red, green. However, IŽve been to the Driburg
Glasmuseum today and can confirm this is from their output indeed.  :)
IŽll post some pictures in a further thread.
