Thanks all ~ guess it's agreed that it's an Aseda vase by Bo Borgstrom then!
The only thing now is the Hoymantort/Hovmantorp thing  :? ~ the name of the place where Aseda was based, perhaps?
Thanks again, John.

Both Hovmantorp and Åseda (or Aseda as it is more often called) are small towns in the south of Sweden where there used to be glassworks. They are situated not far (not more than 30 km) from other towns/villages where there are or used to be glassworks, such as Orrefors, Kosta, Åfors, Boda and Gullaskruv.
