Possibilities of early IoWSG or Norman Stuart Clarke have been suggested.

oddly Pete, the first thing that sprang to mind when I saw the vase was the neck and rim, was it reminded me of Benny Motzfeld. I have a jar vase by her that looks very similar in shape but not in decor and I'm not sure the pontil mark would be right. But it may be worth checking Scandinavian studio makers at Randsfjord glass and Plus who came along after Benny?

Great minds, m  ;D - I did think Benny too, because of the shape, but dismissed her because of the use of silver nitrate to colour the glass, the pontil mark - which to me looks like a 4-pronged tool has been used, and the stannous chloride iridesence. 
3 major non-Benny features.  ???
