Orrefors Bowl

This Orrefors bowl has the numbers 2227 engraved on the base.  Can anyone tell me who the designer might be?  Thanks.

Hi:

Your glass was designed by Edvin Öhrström and appears in the catalog of 1940
with a number 2224/1.

The form also was produced with a top 2224/2

Thank you both very much!  Yes, of course, I should have realised that a seven would be crossed!  It is in fact 2224  ::)
