Any thoughts on this one, the glass seems streaky when under uv not uniform.

7 1/2 inches in height 3 1/2 inches across the base.

There is no m mark, I do agree it feels modern though.

The mark will be on the body not the base. It's just underneath his tail I think

When I was looking Mosser up, I found that they stopped using the M mark around '86.
It does look very Mosser.

It still might be worth your time searching their products. I had a go, but I'm afraid I gave up without struggling terribly far.
(I'm not good at refining searches to weed out the stuff I don't want to see and end up going doolally.)

Must admit, I did think there is an 'M' mark, second photo on the edge of the base, by the tip of the tail, as Christine mentions.

Naked of any marks at all, not a sausage nothing, no M for Mosser.

I believe you Chris. I can see no M mark. 
I'm not quite sure how this got postively sorted in the title, I do strongly suspect it could well be Mosser, but we haven't ascertained anything beyond opinion.
