By the way Rose I meant to say it is most definitely marked as Kosta Boda and for that money it would have joined the 75 other pieces of Kosta/Boda/Kosta Boda glass I already own.  By the way, the numbering system seems to have come in about the time of the merger.  Before that pieces seem to have the artist name or their initials followed by a design number.

Ooops, the Bubble Sculpture was meant to show the base signature - I am trying again.

Ross is right in his interpretation of the numbering.  I should check my memory before posting. 8 is a decanter, btw, although I would hate to depend on decanters of those dimensions for a drink.  The five number system dates from the early 1970's. There were several cooperative ventures, mergers, and takeovers in the 70's. They changed to a seven number system in 2002.
