Hi I thought that you may like to know that I received a reply from a Finnish glass forum website about this glass set and it is (or at least the glasses look exactly like) Hans Christian Wagner of Björkshult Glassworks a Swedish company

He was a main designer working there between 1957-1976 according to factory info

Thanks to Wisitor02 by the way :))

It's a very nice quality set.
