Optic ribbed carafe?  Opticrib

Another piece I need help with.
Approx 5 1/2" tall it has vertical optic ribs and flat ground and polished base. It is clear glass with a green or bluish tinge which is quite vibrant, coming up from the base, under uv light it has an orange glow.
It does have a lip , so I think maybe a carafe?
I picked this up around 10 years ago and would really like to know where it originates.

Unfortunately it's too blurred to make out. It's best to photograph glass with a white background so you can make out the shape and colour better. Can we also have a photo of the base, please, to see the pontil mark.

Pics taken in natural light with no flash. The optic ribs don't show to well, the vertical ribs fade out just below the shoulder

It doesn't ring a bell, sorry. Maybe someone else will recognise it. 
Is there a chamfered edge around the base? If so, it might point to Bohemian, eg, Moser. 

(PS, it helps if the photos are in focus. If you have a digital camera with a 'flower' setting for close-up photos then it's best to use that for pottery & glassware rather than rely on autofocus. And keep snapping at different angles and distances until you get the focus right)

You could be right with Bohemian Naomi, the colour looks right.

I have a Moser piece that's the same colour, but I don't know if the designer did any pitchers.
