Definitely not Pairpoint (didn't make jades) or Steuben (the color is too light) or Fenton, Westmoreland, etc (all of which made molded wares). This item looks like it was made in three pieces (base, stem and bowl). It does remind me a bit of French alabaster/opaque type glass or even Sandwich glass....

Ooh!  I've just found some plain green from Westite and Akro that are very like this green.

But they don't seem to have made this shape... :cry:
Thank you very much!
