Gosh, that is strangely fancy for something likely to be knocked but I can't think of what else it might be.  The dark green colour & design elements are typical of much early American glass - you could try the EAPG web pages.  Sorry I can't help more.  Wish they were mine :)
Nice pictures and a very good visual of the colour changes under lighting.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Opaline celery vase - ID = Davidson

Bryn, I think it's from Davidson's RD 320124, registered on 10 June1898 (and part of their '1899 suite').


Does it not have the embossed RD number on it somewhere?

If you can find 794358 I'd be most grateful.   Presumably 1930s, it is somewhere between a Straw Dispenser & a Giant Sugar ditto.

Thanks Anne! I have also have a masters in computer science and worked in IT for 25 years before retiring, so didn't have a problem getting it done. I added it to the Japanese Labels folder of the Labels, Marks and Signatures folder, since we know it is a Japanese label, even though we don't know the maker.

Just to add … found out yesterday that this vase is from a series called 'Agora', still attributed to him, CB,  but can't confirm it yet.

I then placed the vase on a sideboard … (yes, some people still have sideboards  :D) … switched on another ceiling light but here it's closer to it and it turned a bit more violet (the blue is a reflection of the telly) ....switched it off, lit the lamp next to it, and it turns to this nice aqua-marine type of  colour … can't think of what else to call it.

Looks like you've enjoyed yourself too, it really is difficult trying to show what you're talking about with this type of glass.

I've taken several pictures and these are the ones that resemble most to what i'm seeing with different lightsources.

The bright pink one in the post above is taken with UV light, as I mentioned before. I've left the piece in place and switched on the main ceiling light, and it turned a darker violet if not mauve, darker than the  colour by daylight on my coffee table, at the very top of this page.
I then switched off the light, and held a small LED torch in it, and it turned bright blue. Finally, I took a picture with flash and it turned dark grey.
