As far as I can tell, it is what it says it is. A Nanny Still designed filigree cased glass bowl, for Riihimaen Lasi Oy. A Pallo bowl, as is shown on page 225 of Designlasinhintakirja, but hard to tell for sure, as it is just a diagram.
The signature looks good to me.

Thanks :). I have seen very few pieces by Nanny still, and was really just curious as to what design it was. Is the reference book you mentioned readily available?

Hi Level,

You can purchase it online. It is in Finnish, with a basci translation list at the back of the book. All pictures are sketches and are in black and white, but I have found it really helpful, especially as I just adore Finnish glass (particularly Riihimaen Lasi)  ;D
