wonderful quality and colour but the sig looks unconvincing. I think generally speaking, if you have a top piece you get a top sig. This one is at odds.

Hello, that's it! Pictured on page 96 of Scandinavian Glass 1930-2000, designed by Ellis Bergh in 1938. Thank you for your information.

I have this vase signed LH1604 which comes from the 50s.  The color looks identical so perhaps yours was made in the same batch of glass.
