sorry Keith  -  not a clue and since no one has yet responded my humble opinion is this one is quite possibly a States piece from the second half of the C20.            Makers such as Fenton/Imperial/Westmorland and Wright are associated with marble glass, though have to say whether they marked any of theirs I've no idea.

But  -  good to see you're joining us pressed collectors group ;D

Sorry Keith

I cannot be of any help either. I have never seen that shape before.
I have seen quite a few pieces of American marbled glass and quite often pieces are marked in the second half of the C20.

I would not completely rule out it being English.
I still have marbled glass vase which seems to have a cased interior looks like pressed glass but has a polished pontil which still has me stumped.

It's a really peculiar colour for slag glass - it looks like malachite, but blue.
I can't bring myself to trust this shade of blue. It looks modern to me, I can't get my head around it being an old colour. I know that it is; I just don't believe that it is.

Have seem some Fenton glass in this colour but not this mould, they were dated for the 1970s.
