Hi all,
I was so surprised to finally find the answer, I thought I should share it here.
Obviously it's Georgshütte / Boffzen. There's a newspaper article here with one picture actually showing the vase alongside with other Georgshütte designs.
In the third picture a catalogue page can be seen stuck to the wall behind a tall blue vase with the same surface structure and similar shaped neck.
Some riddles take years I've learned here...
I can't imagine the mis-attribution will ever vanish though.

That's an amazing find!  Thanks Dirk :)

I'm sure there's another shape with that pattern on somewhere - a zig zag type shape vase maybe?
Might that also be Georgshütte?  Must go and do a search to see if I've remembered that correctly.

Great discovery, Dirk!
It's so long ago that I even forgot that I own one of these vases (and contributed to this thread) ;)

Cheers...
like always with this kind of glass, you find it while browsing for something else...
 ;D

Not sure which zig zag shape you mean, m?

No, I'm not sure what I've remembered either now.  I looked when you first posted but couldn't find anything  :)  It'll pop up at some point and be something else entirely of course  ::)
