Thanks Adam

Hi Adam, I think it's a Tamara Aladin design, although I don't know the design number.

Here's one in their olive green:

Looks like it could be the shorter verion of this one:

as far as I know all of these above are Riihimäen Lasi export collection and may be Aladin designed but they are not officially documented as such. There are dozens of vases in that status - although widely attributed as Aladin designs.
