Came across this very pretty vase the other day, clearly Orrefors but I'm not sure of the designer (for not sure read, "haven't got a clue really!). Following links for some other postings on this subject I think the letter that looks like an "N" could be Nils Landberg, but there are two other letters at the end that look like "O" and "S"   worse than prescriptions to read! Vase is 13cms high.  Any help much appreciated. I don't have Ivo's book but I'm sure he'll have something useful to say!

Your vase is copper wheel engraved on crystal designed by Nils Landberg at Orrefors.
The vase came in two sizes in height: 135 and 180

The piece appears in the 1940 catalog but I think you vase was created in 1941.

I cannot id the engraver from the last two letters.
