Tall decanter - Italian?

Any ideas on this decanter would be much appreciated.  No pontil mark.  Two seams. Non-ground stopper (no plastic).  23" high with a 8½" diam. slightly concave base. Smoked purple.  That I think rules out Blenko unfortunately :roll:  (and may be Pilgrim also?)

My guess is probably Italian, c.60s.  What does anyone think please :P

It certainly looks Italian Anne, but I haven't seen one with those ridges on the neck before.  So my jury is out.  :wink:  It's a cut above the usual, I can say that at least.

Thanks Max :P   It is a nice quality one I agree.  It has subtle vertical 'fluting' which probably can't be seen properly on the pic.
