I picked up this delightful small vase(c.12cms tall) from the op-shop for a $1.00 .  From the finish and weight I suspect it is of Scandinavian origin.  As you can see the base has obviously been formed in a mould - no sign of a pontil.

Can someone suggest who made it, and hopefully, who designed it.

From the finish and weight I suspect

right, Finish is the operative word. It is from Riihimäen Lasi, 1960s and a factory design - it will probably not be possible to attribute this to a single designer.

Pretty sure this is by Sea Glasbruk (Swedish).

Another link with the same designer info: [Link]

Those look very new, maybe they're still in production, so I guess the designer info is probably correct?
