I found this vase at a fleemarket a few months ago and payed about 40 Swedish Crowns (4.29 euro/4.6 USD) for it. I didn´t know who it was by just thought I saw quality and I loved it.
After some search I´ve recognized what´s the marks means and I have found other pieces on line to compare with. I have red that Emil Weidlich was recruited by Simon Gate to Orrefors glasworks in the 1920's. He was then at Elme glasworks until he started his own glassworks in 1942 called Värends glasbruk at Älmhult Sweden. This piece is signed Värends konstglas e.w. 78. I think 78 is the production number. It´s 13 cm x 16 cm x 10,5 cm.
I don´t know the value of this today but I think it was worth gettting :)
