Hi Bought this on Ebay Aus and received it today - it is better in reality than in the photo so I am really pleased.  :). The seller couldn't ID the maker as the label is worn, but I have identified it as Reijmyre. Haven't had a piece of theirs before.
 I have googled Reijmyre and found a little info, including a long list of possible designers. I have also been looking at labels and have found lots of photos, but 2 items with the same label as mine were both identified as 1960's. Does anyone know for what periods the various labels were used?   I also haven't been able to find a photo of anything else in this "Amberina" type colour. Does anyone know any way of identifying the designer of this item?  Thanks  Jackie

Not sure about designer and label and period but seeing the style I could believe 1970s. The colour is amber, not amberina.

Thanks Ivo. The colour is very shaded - deep orange at top  shading down to yellow, then almost clear over the shoulders, shading yellow again and back to orange at the bottom. it is a really pretty effect.

Amberina is a specific shading effect whereby a special recipe amber glass item is partially re-heated so that the heated part turns red.

Your shading is simply glass thickness.

I found this - I have no idea whether it is current or not, but maybe they are contactable and might be able to give you the lowdown on the vase?
