I have collected Scandinavian glass for years and came across this a few months ago. The logo is "Saab Scania", it is signed "Orrefors", numbered "4425". and what appears to be "as" or "os" which I assume is the artist although I have not been able to identify it. (Anyone who has any information on that would be appreciated) In 1988 Saab had a "Springtime in Sweden" event when they made 288 special edition top of the line 900 convertible cars. This vase was packed in the trunk as a gift for the cars that were delivered stateside.
I have only found a couple of references to it, and both were asking if anyone had ever seen one or had a picture of it. I finally got in touch with the president of the Saab Club, which is where I got a lot of my information. It was a really fun research project, and although my collection is mainly mid-century pieces, this fits right in as it is so unusual!
