I have seen this basket pattern a few times before in opaque white glass always unmarked.

Here are some photos of an example in purple marbled glass unfortunately, also unmarked.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by Kevin Collins).

Unattributed manufacturer so far, but at a guess dating any time from the late 1870s through to about 1890.
