Hi Dirk, I Googled that and the first picture up was the same color combination, and the second was the same shape... I appreciate it....  Do you know how long it was made, as it appears to be 1960's originally....

Yes, this shape in amber shown in Scandinavian Glass Fire & Sea by Leslie Pina (page 26), other shapes with this colour combination also shown, all designed by Bo Borgström for Aseda, date given as circa 1960s.

Edit: Aseda bought by Royal Krona in 1974, Royal Krona group went bankrupt in 1977.
