hiya, me again.....
your vase was made by Gralglas in Dürnau / Göppingen, possibly
late 60's design. comes in rectangular, too.
also I've seen this round version with a metal collar to the base.
Gralglas had 'special' names for their colours. I think, your blue
one would be 'Elektron' then.

last not least, a possible designer's name: Konrad Habermeier.
couldn't find your vase in an exhibition catalogue I have, but the reference given
in this ebay-auction looks reliable:

For future reference, here's  an example with a silver collar. I've been looking
for ages to find one for an acceptable price. The silver hallmarks show, that the
collar was produced by 'Lutz und Weiss' in Pforzheim. Thanks to the seller, who
kept me from searching myself!
The vase is 26cm tall and 7cm in diameter.

I came across this thread while searching for something else, we now know after the Gral book came out that the design of this particular Gral glas vase, pattern nr. F231 from 1962/1963 is by Emil Funke.
