Orrefors candle holder? Or what? Candle10

Picked this up today. It's about 5" high, quite heavy and in case the colour doesn't show up well it's at the bluey end of smokey rather than the browny end. Base is only very slightly concave, and not ground smooth.

Ah, that's not the first time I've been fooled by Wedgewood playing Scandinavian. Thanks!
So is it a 1980s Frank Thrower piece?
