    I don't know the model numbers or exactly year for design, but they are called Chimaro series, a design by Gunnar Nylund for Strömbergshyttan 1950s. 22 and 10 cm high. Brown-violet and white (opalescent), easily twisted underlay and "irregular" shapes, is the hallmark for this series. I like Nylunds design, he was partly innovative with a personal style, quite different from the traditional Strömbergshyttan glass. Chimaros is a good example of this.

    I showed another model here:
    http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/87208-gunnar-nylund-chimaro-vase--strombergs?in=collection-1793

    Hope to get clarity in the model numbers and the year of the creation of these Chimaro vases. On the way are a few new directories of the year I miss, so I am hopeful that we can resolve it soon.

      Thanks for loves, SEAN68 and vetriao50! I will post new (most Nylund) glass forwards, as I have time to photograph them. There are so much to clean up and and make nice for showing. These Chimaros does not belong to them, but instead purchasing.
