Solvbed - I have found that this vase was made by "Nachtmann" of Germany. It is etched on the top flat of the rim. I never thought to look there  ;D

Perhaps it's a candlestick and you've had it upside down?   ;)

You are right Max.  :hiclp:
I think what threw me off is that the rim with the engraved name is not particularly robust, it is cut flat and more prone to chips/nibbles. The other rim is more rounded and heavy and thought, wrongly, it better for standing and use wear.
