looks to be Hadeland (Norway) - I think the Norsk bit refers to their crystal glass, but not too sure.
Presumably the year of manufacture was 1958 - and all you need now is for someone to tell us to whom the initials belong.
I don't see this particular label in 'Smoke & Ice', or the initials come to that, but certain someone will know.

just possible the designer might have been Willy Johansson, although that doesn't quite fit with JWJ..........  he was with the factory as head designer until 1988, apparently.

Johan Wilhelm Johansson, father of Willy Johansson I believe.

Hi

Absolutely right (sorry I’m late again), this is a vase by Johan Wilhelm Johansson. The father of the more famous Willy Johansson at Hadeland in Norway, he was the master glassblower in charge of the workshop where Hadeland’s art glass range was made, and he designed some of the art glass models himself, as well as actually making them. The K-label is the art glass label, K for «kunst» or art in Norwegian.  Nice piece!
