I got this vase very cheaply and that's something I couldn't believe at the time as a simmilar one was offered to my for a considerable price just a few days before I found this.
It's a design by either Gunnar Nylund or Asta Strömberg from 1960 and the engraving is is simply amazing as part of it seems to be made by literally breaking the glass (actually, as rebessin has pointed out, this technique is a cutting technique with metal tools).
It is signed Strömberg B936 R968 at the bottom and according to what I was told, the last part tells us the engraver is Rune Strand.
I do love Strömbergshyttan glass and got around 20 pieces from this factory in my collection, but this one is by far the best of them, as well as one of the best pieces in the whole collection.
