Two not-too-dissimilar cased vases in a typical Empoli caramel colour... one square and one triangular. Fairly this duo are Italian, and not Swedish as stated.

that is a fairly typical Elme colour and if Jan says it is Elme I believe him.

Ah, it's just that when I come across this colour it's always on identifiably Italian pieces.

Was just wondering if they bore any relation to the vase in question.

Jan obviously knows his onions however I noticed he's got an Oberglas vase on his site incorrectly attributed to Riihimaki.
