Possibly by the Swedish glass designer Tyko Axelsson, who is known for both tableware and decorative pieces similar to this.

Hi,

I think I have seen a similar one recently, with label Reijmyre, and
Tyko Axelsson came to Reijmyre in 1957 as far as I know.

Hopefully I will be able to take a picture of it tomorrow.

I forgot to mention, there is no inscription on the bottom.
