Hi and welcome!
I don't believe we know who this maker is yet. This sort of glass is often misdescribed as Monart or Ysart glass, which it isn't.

Frank here (a very respected member of long-standing here, who knows his stuff, Monart and Ysart glass in particular) has coined a phrase to describe it - Cellophane glass.

If you do a search of the board for "cellophane", you should be able to see just about everything we have discussed on this kind of glass.

It's very lovely and well-made. We'd ALL love to know who made it - it has eluded us for years and years.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks a lot for this

I  just googled cellophane and found this page (I believe to be Frank's)

http://www.ysartglass.com/Ysart/NotYsart.htm

It seems to have the exact same colour range as mine! (though looks like a 'new' shape)

It is Frank's page and there are not many colour combinations known.
What is known, is probably there.  :)
Sorry we can't help more!
