Ivo:
not WMF but could be Maastricht design by Max Verboeket. Unable to confirm, though - the bottom finish is right, sig is not always present on smaller pieces.

svazzo:

I'm trying to find is my thought is correct, that the mark would denote it being an Italian piece.

Hi Ivo,
Would Maastricht be German like Frank mentioned it coud be?

Frank:
Maastricht is in Holland. Continuing the European tour :)

My guess on Germany was based on the two colours used which are very popular colours in Bavaria and whenever I see tourists wearing those colours I guess, usually correctly, that they are German. Of course it is a leap of imagination to apply that to glass....

Polished out pontils are quite common when a good quality finish is desired.  Or where the base is visible through the glass. Glassmakers that usually left the pontil on on opaque glass have been known to grind down and polish, even on Monart! It was not that long ago when any glass without a polished pontil was considered second rate by collectors.

Do you think this looks similar ?

Hej!
Jag har en vas var det ser ut som dekoren ligger i glaset. Är det någon som som vet vem som kan vara upphovsman till denna? Tack på förhand!

Vasen är inte tillverkad i arielteknik!

Den är formgiven av Tora Pors som var knuten till Kalmar glasbruk under åren 1947 till 1954. Hon arbetade oftast själv i hyttan och teknade med färgade glasstavar direkt på
det varma glaset, posten, och när motivet var klart lade man på ett nytt klarglas lager ovanpå dekoren. Dekoren kommer då att ligga ingjuten i glaset. Stilen kallades för
"Myrica" glas och är uppkallad efter henne. Tekniken kallas för "glavering" efter dess upphovsman Arnold Glave.
 

Now I speak no Swedish, so would be interested in the translation.

PS:

Having just done a Google on Arlond Glave I came up with this:
