Thank you Christine, I can not quite believe that I have just weighed the water held in the vase (not that accurate without electronic scales) and it weighed around 80 grams.
I will not be weighing any other liquids to determine relative densities! (Unless I am very drunk which is rarer than rocking horse doo doos).

I too have often wondered at the /number or .number on Orrefors and Kosta glass.  Since it does not make much sense to have 27 numbers of this vase I suggest that is unlikely.  Similarly 27 versions of the shape would also seem unlikely.

So I pondered a while and have come up with what may be a possibility or two.   

Possibility 1 - that seems somewhat unlikely, as duplicate numbers seem to exist, is that it was the 27th of that shape made.

Possibility 2 - is that it is an inspector's number.   That is a person who inspected it for its correct shape, colour, etc. then engraved it with the appropriate number plus their own number verifying that it was saleable as a first.
