I was very lucky to find this - it was described as a "vintage irridescent (sic) glass jug", the pictures were terrible, and I only spotted it 5 minutes before the listing ended.
I believe that this is a Loetz spiraloptisch milk jug - Alfredo has a jug in the same decor in the shape of my pink Rusticana (just posted) - see http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/35381-loetz-one-shape-three-versions?in=user
There is a beautiful soft yellow iridescence over the green that I found very hard to capture in the photos - hence the black glass plinth. And it is vaseline glass - the final photo was taken under UV light, but in broad daylight. Alfredo christened his "Olympia Spiraloptisch" because of the uranium. I'm not sure I can get away with that name - the yellow iridescence really does not fit with Olympia!
