Just leafed through the catalogues... no Arctic Blue for this pattern... or Willow, as far as I can see... So Pewter it is, c.1969.

There's a nice group photo of some Pewter glass HERE

Ray, it looks like Ocean Green to me - I have one exactly the same shape and colour - mine is anyway - it has a light greeny tinge to it.

The one piece of Ocean Green I own has a much duller subdued colour to it.

I can only spot this size vase in the 1964. 66 & 69 catalogues.... 1964/66 lists Blue, Green & Ruby, cased in clear... 1969 lists Kingfisher, Pewter Ruby.

Unless I'm missing something glaringly obvious? :D

No worries Ray.  The proper WF colour name is Ocean Green and I'm not saying that's definitely what it is but for comparative purposes here's a link to my vase, which I can now see is a different shape to yours, but the colour looks the same and I've always been under the impression mine is Ocean Green ... but I'm often wrong  :oops:

I always thought that this was Ocean Green:

But, as I said, I've only got the one piece... so I'm not exactly an Ocean Green colour expert!  :lol:
