Bought this vase today, 21,5 cm hight and quite substantial.

It has an abstract decoration (which can be felt at the inside as well), and two seams.
Top is cut and bevelled.

There were minor remains of a label with the letters "...EN", so I guess Sweden could be a contender :)

On ebay is a labeled Lindshammar vase at the moment with a very similar decoration: http://cgi.ebay.de/22-5-cm-Hohe-Kristall-Vase-Lindshammar-Schweden-um-1960-/180679951916?pt=Glas_Kristall&hash=item2a115d462c

Can someone confirm if this is a Lindshammar vase? Designer, age,...?
Thanks,
Michael

A gentle bump :) -- any Lindshammar experts out there?
I attach a pic with a darker background to make the pattern more obvious.

I am 90% certain mine is the from the same range of Lindshammar vases as the one on ebay I linked to:
same rim finish, similar thickness of glass, similar decor, and especially the position of the label close to the bottom (a feature which seems to be quite distinctive for Lindshammar).

I even wrote the ebay seller, and he was very kind and provided a close-up pic of the (partly destroyded) label -- so I even know who may have designed it...

Thanks for any comments!
Michael
