    Found this beautiful vase at a local thrift store (CHKD). At the time I didn't know it was signed on the bottom.... I just loved the blue tint to it. I got it home and wiped it down I noticed it was signed on the bottom Strombershyttan B905. Height 7 1/8'. Very thick. Not sure what the B905 means, I guess it's a model number. Any more info on this would be wonderful.

      Fantastic vase.
      There is a lot of Strombergshyttan glass here on CW with good information.
      Rebessin has a huge knowledge of their history and a direct family attachment to the glass works.

      A model from 1957-59 s as I see. Probably Asta Strömberg for the design. (can also be Gunnar Nylund).

      I found the same signed vase exactly as yours in a thrift store, but I only noticed the signature last week . There is a good explanation (history) and price in the link below, but on searches, I have seen many prices from 70 to 300 dollars

      Yes, Asta Stromberg for the Form B905-& the technology brilliance of the multi-modal artist Gunnar Nylund for glass chemical artistry. It was HE whobrought the Art&Science of the blue tint.
      Nice Vessel!
