BTW the label reads Torben Orskov and not Ostrov...

Google finds quite a lot of items, but not much glass. - So maybe a retailer?

Sorry Michael, you are right...slip of the finger on keyboard.....or wottevva! :pb:

I have just re-found the link I discovered this lovely vase in, it was:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Danish-Modern/397836892003

scroll down and you see the vase, then I cut and pasted that link in Google to get the link I gave you.....so the spelling mistake was them, not me....I feel exonerated!!  I pride myself on my spelling!!
It seems Bodil Kjaer was a woman, and a very prolific designer in the 60's....I love anything Scandi, especially Danish....this is a nice vase Wolfie.

Can't understand how I missed this thread before, but anyway. The designer is indeed Bodil Kjaer, who was/is Danish, and they were produced in Sweden at Gullaskruf. I attach an ad from a Swedish interior design magazine (1964).

On going back over this thread,  I decided to look further into cross shaped vases and to my dismay,  came across this advert:

http://centuryview.en.alibaba.com/product/587757429-50121640/_font_b_cross_b_font_shaped_clear_glass_font_b_vase_b_font_unique_shape_for_font_b_flower_b_font_arrangements_wholesale.html

So beware of imitations!!
