Is this a Bohemian or Murano knobbly? ID = Hineri, Japan

I apologise for the dark background.  As you can see this vase has a sort of Knobbly appearance.  It is c.30cm tall and has thick walls - the rim as shown is about 1cm thick.  It has 6 lobes and each has a waved appearance.  Flat base makes me wonder about Murano BUT I have never seen a Murano piece I can remember without colour.  No makers marks that I can find.  The base is polished and flat.

I recently found this vase on the Designlasi site.

It strikes me it is very much created the same way - the scalloping, the vertical lines, the thick glass.  The one on the site is signed "Olavi Nurminen, Nuutaj√§rvi Notsj√∂ -56".  Mine has no signature I can find.

Is there a Finnish specialist out there who might be able to help confirm one way or the other if it is from the factory and/or the same designer.

Mystery solved.  An identical vase in what seems to be neodymium glass has appeared on Ebay complete with an Hineri Sticker.

Thus, it is Japanese by Hineri one of the better makers I have seen.

Ross, could you ask the eBay seller for permission to copy the image with the sticker and add it to the Board for reference?

ahremck:
I will do that Kevin.  I have in fact made a bid for it - but your method would at least give us a proper image.
