Signature looks like it could be Orrefors?

Looks like Orrefors. I'll move it over to Scandinavian. :)

A similar looking bowl appears in the Orrefors catalog from 1956.

 It is number 3582 with a defined designer CPA.  My thoughts are it was designed by Sven Palmqvist

The only problem, this form is shown as an ashtray in the catalog.

The other problem is I cannot id the signature CPA as shown in the catalog.

Thanks Bill, I have double magnified it and talcum powdered it and the pattern is 3588 and the initials are like $ $ but the line crossed through at a tiltfrom the top tip of the s to the bottom tip.
Sue. The picture you talked about, is it online?.

Good morning:

The only interpretation of CPA we can come up with is the C represents the 1950's listing, P means Palmqvist and the A is hand made.
