Orrefors vase

This is another Orrefors piece, again I don't know the age can anyone help, it does have some wear to the base which would suggest that it is not new.

Thanks

Orrefors vase

The signature looks to me like an A and a number in the 4000 series.

If this is the case, it was designed by Olle Alberius who was designer at
Orrefors from 1971 until 1993 when he passed away.

It is a production piece evidenced by the second number indicating more than one type was made.
