Picture 1: B729 - 160 mm, B799 - 240 mm and B798 - 320 mm. All in X66 underlay color.
Picture 2: B729 and B799. The difference in design/form (except from the height) is that B729 has the colored underlay way up to the opening edge (also seems to have a little wider edge), whereas B799 has the top edge in clear glass.
Picture 3: B798.
Picture 4: B729 - here in 230 mm height and with X58 color underlay.
These vases by Gunnar Nylund for Strömbergshyttan was launched around 1956-57. You could get them in several colors including these amethyst/burgundy X66 and X58. I do not think they were produced very long, probably hard to find on the used market. Nylund's glass design is bold and fresh, and it stands out in comparison with Strömbergshyttans classic shapes, represented by Gerda Stromberg's 1930 - and 40-century forms.
