Hi, any help on this beautiful, heavy vase would be great. Its 7.5" tall and 4" across. The base is signed twice on opposite sides, I would think Scandi. Has anyone got any ideas of maker and what the signatures say? TIA Wolfie

Don't know what the other word says, sorry...

Hi Michael, that's great, cheers!
Does anyone else know what the other signature stands for with what looks like a '3' at the end? TIA Wolfie

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

What a wonderful item - wish I had one in my Scandinavian collection.

Thoughts about the 3
(1)  A size reference.  That is, they made at least 3 sizes.
(2)  A (very) limited edition number.
(3)  The actual glassblower's "signature" - that is number three of however many blowers they used at the time.

If I had to punt I would go with my second suggestion.
