threading appears to have been produced in several colours  -  the blue shown in this thread being possibly one of the most common - but clear threading on a clear body seems definitely to have been the least common of the combinations.

These have a red body (with diamond pattern) cased in clear with yellow threading.

I notice on some of these I've seen, the body can be fatter, the trim lower down, the thread not always go to the center of the pontil...i was wondering do you think they're likely variations due molds & because of hand applied decoration rather than being by a different maker?

Machine threading was used by many glass makers which makes identification tricky, each factory probably produced a variety of shapes and variations further muddying the waters.

There were many small manufacturers in the Stourbridge area alone that could do this kind of threading apparently.... My clear vase has slightly different threading and rim but could come from the same place. I think we can be (almost) certain they are English. I wondered if the nice threaded wavy small dishes shared a locality of origin too..... I do hope we get a solid attribution one day.

Thanks boBA. I read it was an Englishman (can't remember his name, probably in Stourbridge:) who came up with a threading machine and emigrated to the USA, i guess it quickly caught on all over. I saw a lovely nailsea vase with clear threading the other day. I'd never seen such a thing before, it was only a photo but it took me awhile to work out how it was made, with it clear glass threading. Amazing.
