Hi,  
Found this photo of a vase by Guldkrokens Glashytta with a very similar signature.  No designer name identified though.  However, I think the last 3 letters are Hjo and not H90 as suggested in the text.

I thought that as well, TMaritta.  Perhaps Ivo will be able to add more when he returns? (They are not mentioned in Ivo's book.) Or perhaps Bill Geary may know of them also?

Gyldkrokens are not mentioned in any book - I only found out about them through Antikprat after finding a similar mottled piece with an incomplete label. They only produced glass 1972-1982 - so short lived.
The pottery works who specialises in piggy banks is much better known, and there currently seems to be a retail outlet which does piggy banks and glass - but produced elsewhere.

Hi IVO, pleased to see you back to the forum!  8)

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
