Irregular blue corked topped bottle bought from USA over 10 years ago

Hi

I bought this from a USA seller sometime over 10 years ago. The glass is very fine but unmarked has anyone seen another? The base is not ground but rather it has been placed on a flat surface when still pliable to give a flat base for standing when cool.

Hmm I thought the shape on the Lindshammar label is not far away from the shape of this vase.

If you bought it from the US it might be Blenko.

Found a piece about Arthur Percy who designed long necked bottles for Gullaskruf, which were also produced by Aseda, Lindshammar, Elme etc, but they have a flared rim and don't have the curved neck.

Yes I saw those perhaps the shape on the label is a clue to the piece's use as although too styalised to be of pratical use it's shape may have been specific to a certain vessel style.

I think the glass shape on the label is a throwback to medical glassware, possibly made when the factory started.
