It is a generic label - but it might be Ekenäs

Thankyou Ivo, just googled ekenas and found similar label on a bud vase, it also mentioned designer Micheal Bang.
Could it be possible that the piece i have is also designed by Micheal Bang?

Bang only worked there briefly, and there are no published records of his designs from this period.

This label was also extensively used by Elme Glasbruk.
