Help ID art glass dish

Any ideas who made this heavy art glass dish? It measures 17 1/2" " long. Unfortunately the long edge has been chipped.

The style was pioneered by Flygsfors (Sweden) in the fifties, however the colour is not - and if it were, it would be marked and there would be a telltale white thread along the edge. I assume there is no signature (naw that would be too easy).
Candidates are Bayel in France, although I have never seen this colour combo from them and Aseda from Sweden.  
Pity about the chip; if it is not too large maybe you can fill it in with clear nail polish. This counts as an acceptable restauration (because reversible) and at least makes it safer to the touch.
