Tapio Wirkkala Iittala Vase with Bubble

Wondering if the eBay attribution is correct (eBay item number 150021299351).    Mine's identical, but in yellow. Is this, in fact, a Wirkkala piece?  Didn't they sign everything with etched initials?  Has good size and heft, but no signature or label.

I think that if it's unsigned, it is not by Wirkkala. There are other companies that made these vases.
