It looks a bit more like a variation of "Crystal Blue Stripe" than Marble to me. Marble has dullish browns in it, the amber shades that appear in this are because of the way the silver has reacted with the glass and the difference between reflected and refracted light.
(You see the amber when light is coming through the glass from behind).
It's just not striped.  ;D
It probably dates to somewhere around the later '80s into the '90s on.
I don't know about the Greek market, I think things were made more for exporting to the German market around this time.

this is what Pamela Said replied.
Pamela Said
These items where produced for our Greek agent… so they where mainly sold in high end Shops in Greece. they are part of the marble range and the crysel blue stripe range.

ok, much, much later than my interest then, but still variations on the original designs.
When you said Pamela, I assumed Pamela Weissendorf. :)

"Marble", (a later variation of Tiger) still contains dull browns, while this looks, as I said like Crystal Blue Stripe colours and trailing, just not in vertical stripes.

Now I know later stuff got sent to Greece, thanks.
Did Pamela miss out the t of crystal?  :)

It used to be Crystal Blue Stripe - like Marble was Tiger.
It's had another renaming.  ;D
And you've taught me something more, thanks!

So I should perhaps leave a question mark over the "crysal". It's sounding as if it might have been a typo that got copied. Sometimes, folk don't pronounce "t"s in the middle of words. Thanks again. :)

Rosie Pearce has had it confirmed by Mdina Glass that it's Crysal (as in crizzle) Blue Stipe, so not a typo
