Hi Kieran,

It's by Alsterfors.  Also in purple and green.  Probably other colours, too.
Gosh, one of the few Scandi vases I'm sure of  :)

Oops, on second thoughts...  :-[

I think the Alsterfors vases I've seen in this shape are solid colours not cased... and around 17 cm.

I'll get me coat...

Can you tell us where you got that attribution from please Kieran?  PO Strom vases are *usually* signed and, as Chris said, their waisted vases are mostly opal cased. 

I suspect that this vase is by Aseda and designed by Bo Borgstrom - I'd be interested to see your source of info to ascertain if they're a reliable source.

Found it - on Pkay's photobucket account (he's a member of the GMB).  I'd tend to agree with him in that case - he deffo knows his onions.  So please ignore everything I said earlier :-)

...one by 20th centuryglass...

Attributions by this seller are often ...dubious... at best.
