Can any one help identify this claret decanter, it stands 16 inches high, has barley twist style handle and stopper. thanks.

It is a lot lighter in colour than this photo, a very pale green.

Hi pthrelfall & welcome
I have seen quite a number of items in the same style as your decanter and I believe they come from Italy, probably from the area around Florence where there are a number of quite large manufacturers. I believe they were mainly made in the 60's & 70's but also maybe later.
