Hi Adam,
Riihimaen it is, probably a Tamara Aladin design, although not 100% sure on that. Tried to find another example online, although not that many photos of this shape. You can just about see your vase on the second shelf in the picture in the below link:

Easily done, there's quite a few shapes in that display.   :)
