Does it strike you as fairly modern Ben? I have seen and handled a few similar vases, they all had trails in contrasting colours to the body and were well made. I thought quite recent and given the quality not Chinese, perhaps Poland or somewhere in Eastern Europe.

Do you still have my phone number? Get in touch.

Nice one John - yep I've used my mum's GM account.

I thought perhaps modern Polish/Eastern European too so we're on the same page with this.

Fraid I've lost yer numbers 'cause my last phone suddenly stopped working and I hadn't saved contacts to sim. Please send your mob/landline number to benderrynmylo at outlook dot com
Would be good to talk, its been a while.

Cheers, Ben

Better late than never, made in Sweden by Skruf, judging by this one anyway...

Interestingly, on this site about an upcoming exhibition on Polish designer Jerzy Słuczan-Orkusz a whole range of vases like this are shown (you have to go to the second photo using the ">" to the right)

That is much better Michael, no wonder I could not find another example searching for Skruf... Just goes to show a single label is not always enough. Guessing that label was moved.

Searching using Słuczan-Orkusz however does show other examples and helps to build a picture of the designers style. Very useful thank you - I occasionally see some of these vases on my travels, will start buying them if they are the right price too.

Thank you for that link Michael......I know there are at least two pieces, in the forty boxes I am working through,  that I now think I can identify!

Just got to find them 😹
