Possibly yes but possibly no - in ebay speak white modern is shortened to strom... automatically. But is certainly is a contender.

Sometimes they are signed, sometimes not, I am pretty sure I have seen one in this design signed P.O. Strom. Sometimes the signature is so small and faint it takes real effort to find, check in different lights and at different angles and them have another look....

Thanks. I have looked closely and no signature. At the same time I bought this there was an identical piece that was signed. Also same shape in different colours.

Looks like Per Olof Strom's to me, not often found in white.
Catalogue number: S 5000.

I can't remember if I read anything about why some were signed and others weren't.
I would say perhaps it's because there's a flaw in the glass, but I have signed pieces that have obvious flaws so, who knows?
