More likely P.O. Ström (and a two figure date, 68, 69, etc) usually found like this on Alsterfors vases (Sweden). This is one of their shapes: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2495/3977170474_8e641bd238.jpg

I have seen some of the other shapes in white, like yours, they don't seem to be as common as the other colours though.

Thanks! I think the # on it is 29 so that must be the shape number. Do you know when these were produced? I have some other mystery pieces I will post when i take some pics...... your help is great. Unless I know the maker or type I don't know where to start looking for research material! cheers, amanda
