Hi Anik
Jon found this on ebay same as our vases it is stickered with a retail label S Christian of Copenhagen Inc. San Francisco, the seller says this company has been out of business for over 35 years and that they specialized in Scandinavian crystal. Size given "Height  6" Base 2.5" Top 3" by 5"

At least it confirms the Scandinavian origin of the vase and the approximate date. They sold quite a variety of makers, if I remember.

Thanks David, thought it may be another piece of the puzzle to one day getting a positive ID on this vase.
It is as i said previously a nicely made vase with quality workmanship.
The one on ebay is around the same size as Aniks too

Ah, thank you, Michelle!  It's lovely to stumble upon a clue after years of mystery.  :)

So Anik, 'Never say Never'....somewhere along the way, someone somewhere will find another match....but, is it Orrefors?  Or is the eBay seller assuming it is Orrefors?  There is another fish vase on eBay at the moment, that is Orrefors that is signed very clearly on the base.......surely yours and Michelle's would be signed if it were Orrefors? Shall we keep on looking for another one? Could it be Danish Glass....???Holmegaard???
