Better late than never I hope... I think this is a Caithness vase attributed to Domhnall Obroin.  There is a shorter version on the bottom left hand of page 358 of Charles Hajdamach's book '20th Century British Glass'.  I bought a similar vase in May in the north of Scotland and think I've finally figured out what it is  :)
Let me know if you agree...
Marie.

Cylindrical Ring Vase - Domhnall Õ Broin c1961. Short lived design can probably be described as rare.

Marie could you take some pictures of yours on a plain background for Scotland's Glass please, including base.
