Not convinced (but a v nice piece of glass).
Here's a good comparison:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Stromberg-Shyttan-Mid-Century-Modern-Art-Glass-Vase-/220605538861?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item335d1d622d

It's interesting to put the pictures side to side and note the differences, especially in the curve of the top.

Is there a colour tint to the glass ? (in my limited experience with Stromberg, the glass has tended to either be water clear or very slight blue tint - your pictures look more silver grey tint ?)
