Any ideas who could have designed this piece ?

It looks to be cut down. I suspect it might be Ernest Gordon, (because of this piece)

Hi:

it is my understanding Ernest Gordon designed for Åfors Glasbruk from 1953 to 1955.

The affiliation of Åfors with Kosta did not take place until 1964

Therefore, it could not be Ernest Gordon at Kosta.

I also doubt it is a Vicke Lindstrand design.
