I think you mean Kosta. Can we have pictures against a plain background, including a base shot (much as we like being nosy, garden backgrounds don't work for being able to see clearly).

Maybe Kosbo stands for Kosta boda, If it is right, you got yourself a bargain... I'm sure someone will know for definate

The mark is for Kosta, this vase predates the merger with Boda. According to Ivo's book (Miller's Glass Fact File a-z) LH is for Lindstrand Handmade, numbers in the range 1640-1784 date between 1958-61. I'm not sure if the year is the design year or production year. Either way it's a very desireable vase and a great find at £3.50  :mrgreen:

Hi:

What a great price!  This vase first appears in the Kosta catalogue for 1962-3, but could have been made after that date.

For sure made for more than these years. It's common.

Langhaugh is correct in saying year of design as 1962 (Fire & Sea pg78) Alas that doesn't say length of production - Def a bargain these regularly got for the £100 mark on ebay. Well Done You!
