Please help me identify this attractive but unusual vase, which is most probably Scandanavian?

Thank you.

What is the base like? Moulded, ground pontil mark...?

An alternative to Scandinavian, is glass designed by Domhnall Ă“Broin at Caithness. It's one of his colours - peat (Loch, Heather, Peat) - and it has the ground down rim that's typical of Caithness. They tended to be unmarked.

If they never used if for flowers then it'll look pretty new.

I think I have seen one of these too, no idea who made them though.

How tall is it?

Thick glass and a cut rim would tend to indicate fairly new glass from Poland rather than vintage Scandinavian.

The one I saw was around 20-25cm tall and very heavy. At the time I thought it may have come from one of the smaller Scandinavian works, Reijmyr sprang to mind but that was probably just my mind flailing around...

I've been looking at Scandinavian glass by Aimo Okkolin for Riihimaki and it looks very similar except for the rim. I'm wondering if it's a cut down piece.

Came across something vaguely similar, listed as
"Gablonz"vase, c1970s by Zwiesel

It might be by Schott Zwiesel, Germany
