The writing on the bottom of the Hald vase reads

Orrefos Sweden
mi 3886
Edward Hald

The mi could be wrong as it is indistinct

The second of the Orrefors (ie the engraving of the girl with her hands clasped together) is designed 1936-37, made in 1937 and, if that's ER, engraved by Elis Rydh, who, I believe I read somewhere, was considered one of the most skilled engravers there.
