Does anyone recognize this vase or know which company made it?

It reminds me of Bo Borgstrom's designs for Aseda but cannot find this particular shape illustrated. The colour combination is one they used.

I agree with Glassobsessed - the colour combo is fine for Bo Borgstrom for Aseda.  I've had a look through my books and can't find this exact shape either but it's not at all dissimilar from many of his designs that are photographed.  I'd suggest it's probably BB for Aseda too.

John & Pip, thank you. Guess I'll go with Aseda then.

Thanks again. This board is great!

You're welcome - it's a suggestion rather than a positive attribution though.  It would be prudent to continue your research into Aseda/Bo Borgstrom as a possibility - if you need to sell the item and you haven't been able to pin this shape down to Aseda for certain then it would be a good idea to make that connection as probably Aseda/BB rather than a definite 'it is').

It's a lovely thing though  :mrgreen:
