My own thoughts Keith are that this might well be Czech (with an outside chance of VSL) - from somewhere around 1950.    Assuming a water jug, then might have had an active life and picked up a reasonable amount of wear.      Is the body definitely flashed - rather than cased?     
Gulliver does index the term flashing, but I looked quickly and couldn't see an example - I can see the connection  -  a form of brilliant cut design - there are flashed Czech pieces in Millers.

Thanks for looking Paul,I presume it's flashed due to the thinness of the green,have a couple of Czech flashed vases and didn't think to put two and two together,I'll have a look through Millers, ;D ;D

could be wrong Keith, but I had this notion that with flashing, the decoration was wheel engraving, rather than traditional cutting like this, which is done usually when the piece is cased.
