Sorry for having to say this:  :-\
This seems to be one of the Export collection vases that were sold without attribution to any designer.
There is no official documentation  i.e. knowledge of the designer.

Thanks px - I have been told that, I just forgot - nice vase anyway - I wanted one so I bought. It is attributed to Riihimaen though, isn't it?

It is, don't worry.

Have you seen http://www.designlasi.com/ ?

It's a very useful site.

I really like this form, whoever designed them.

This is a shorter version that I've only ever seen in green.
