if it were they'd have signed it - but you have a stunner there, probably from one of the other glass houses like Gullaskruv, Sea or Johannsfors.

Very nice piece. I'd add Smalandshyttan to Ivo's list as, if I remember correctly, they did this colour, and usually used just a label.

P.S. Just thought to Check Pina's Fire and Sea. While this piece wasn't it there, there were a couple of pieces by Smalandshyttan on p. 12 that are similar in spirit and colour.
