    I am trying to identify the designer & glass house of these green vases?
    Any help would be much appreciated.

      Apparently they don't have earthquakes in Sweden.

      Are there any markings on the bottom? Can you tell if it is just glass or if it is crystal? Just clink the top opening with you finger nail lightly and if it rings, it's crystal.
      I have found many Scandinavian pieces, due to the area I live in. IMHO, it looks like it could be an Orrefors designer, Holmegaard, or very possibly a Finnish company like Riihimaki, Nancy Still had a style like this. It could also be English. So hard to tell, without a refence ID etched, sticker, etc...
      I have looked through a lot of my Miller's Reference Books on Art Glass, I really learned a lot from her books, and saw no exact same form. A lot of Scandanavian Art Glass companies used crystallized glass, back in the 50-60's. I just found that most of the Scandanavian glass I obtained and was crystal, ended up being from a Finnish factory.
      Hope I didn't confuse you more. I just emailed CW Staff and gave them a really good resource for on-line Art Glass IDing. It is now listed on the main directory page on the bottom left. It is located at: Check them out....
