It says Guldkrokens Glashytta - which brings up a few bits on Google.

Glasshytter is not Swedish, it's Norwegian.  

Can't find anything to do with Guldkrokens though  :?

Guldkrokens seem to make a lot of ceramics. I've found more mention of that than glass, so possibly that's the best area to look in to find some history of the company?

If this Guldkroken is the same as yours, then it is Swedish...

I found some glass on the site - but only tableware. It's possible that they only make that now.

I found one website with a glass vase on it, and the sellers thought that it dated from the 1990's.

I'm sure someone who knows more about Guldkroken will come along soon, though.  :)
