This is a small vase that I've had for years but remains a mystery to me.
Recently I saw a similar coloured vase - the champagne yellow which had been decorated with engraved lines. It was an early vase by Per Lutken for Holmegaard .... 1944. But when I read the description in Danish translation I was disappointed to see that the lines were engraved. The pontil is polished and and ground right to the edge. This is quite distinct, I think. The white threads inside the champagne coloured glass remind me of the Lindstrand vases for Kosta.
I like the angled lip as well.

    I'm afraid I cannot help much with this... but I will now start looking for champagne glass with vertical stripes engraved, hahaha :)

    Have you tried looking for Elsa Söderberg from Hovmantorp? She had this kind of threads in much of her work, although she used tons of them... I will soon upload here a picture of one of Söderberg's pieces.

    Nanny Still also had some simmilar work, although I'd say this is not of her shapes...

    Thanks to you all scandinavian_pieces, AmberRose, BELLIN68 and austrohungaro!

    I had seen something similar by Nanny Still years ago, but I agree the shape seemed different. The Kosta pieces have flat bottoms I think, Amy?

    Thanks for the hint about Elsa Söderberg for Hovmantorp, too oztroHun!

    I'd say heavy rather than light. Thanks for the attention and help.

    Is that unmarked one a Lindstrand piece?
    It's certainly a similar look.
    But the bottom has been ground differently to mine.
    For some reason I always look to the bottom of pieces for data .... not just signatures. But maybe that's being too finicky ?

    I have seen a catalogue page now that shows a vase with this shape described in Finnish as "Puhallettua filigraanilasia verholla." A curtain of blown filigrana. Nanny Still 1950> luvulta.
    Thanks to REIJO RISTOLAINEN and the Finnish Design Glass Lovers group on Facebook!

    Thanks too to AUSTRO.
    He was the first to mention Nanny Still two years ago!
