Nice piece!  :clap:

I never part with any of my glass, so it's hardy fair to answer! LOL  ;)  But this is my favourite piece of Scandi :D

This is one of my favorite Norwegian pieces, by Willy Johansson.

My Holmegaard warrior...  Aine suggested he was Holger Dansk rather than a Viking... I just love him!

Ok, here goes!
Göran Wärff obelisk and Ulf Johansson graal vase. Ulf Johansson works alone in his atelier, Sjöhyttan and produces some stunning pieces.

Can see the photos aren't terribly good, sorry about that. Here are a couple more..

The first one is a glass made by one of the students at Kosta Boda about 5 or 6 years ago. Reminds me of a scorpion.
The next is by a Dane who lives in Småland, Jens Eltorp. The engraver is Anneli Jonsson.

and a couple more..the batteries died in the camera after that ( probably just as well! ;D  ;D )

The sculpture is by Monica Backström for Kosta Boda. It is designed to  sit upon a light source. Looks beautiful in the dark.
The bowl was designed by Lisa Bauer (Kosta Boda) and  engraved by N. Joansson. Kosta Master Pieces from 1984.
