Hello,
I have been trying to identify this vase all day. I have found one reference of a very similar vase in another colour which has an Aseda sticker, indicating that the designer was Bo Borgstrom, but no other reference site (that I have found) has an example of this design amongst it's list of examples... so I'm not sure.
It is a vibrant red, with a clear base. it is a hooped cylinder shape.
Dimensions:
27.5 cm tall
6.4 cm diameter of outer rim
2 mm width of rim
6 cm diameter of base
approx 7.5 cm width at widest point

These are the only versions of this vase that I've found online. They indicate that the vase is by Bo Borgstrom, but there is not much info to confirm the authenticity of these pictures.
Thanks  :)

Welcome to the forum matrixia.

Looks good, at least judging by the poster for this exhibition: http://www.50-talskeramik.se/2013/09/utstallning-aseda.html

From that exhibition the group photo of these vases: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-G2F9rUbdOWQ/UklEMygM6VI/AAAAAAAAFh4/EejDUxXKGEI/s1600/IMG_7417.JPG

Thank you so much for your quick reply & for supplying these references.
I've been collecting for years (things I like, rather than specific brands/artists)
but now it's time to downsize, so I'm trying to identify what I have...
I figured 2 out on my own, and now you've confirmed a third.
Only a few (!!) more to go!
Thanks again,
M
