Any ideas as to maker would be much appreciated
The vase stands about 9" / 23cm tall and is a deep grey / charcoal colour

I've seen one very like this recently!  I nearly bought one in clear, but the corners looked as if they had been ground down to hide damage.  Does yours have 'ground down' corners?  

I think the maker was Johansfors Glasbruk  :shock:

Hi Leni,
Yes the corners are 'ground down' but very evenly and quite shallow, so could be the original finish rather than a 'repair'

Leni / Deltab
Thanks for the suggestion as to artist, i'll do some searching and see what I can find !

Leni...I think you could be right.   :D  :D  :D

I didn't recognise this style, but going from Ivo's book, Johanfors, a Swedish company did sign items JG plus the pattern number plus the designers surname.  No surname there, but Johanfors is probable I should think.

Big high five to you Leni.   :D

Yay! :D Thanks, Max!  It feels good to get something right, for once!   :lol:

(And to remember something I've seen!   :shock: The loss of memory was begining to worry me, as the years advance!  :oops:  :roll: )

Hi all,

Just found another vase with the same moulding pattern but different shape which is described as Johanfors c1970 so I think you've come up trumps

Thanks for your help !! :D
