ID = Orrefors, Nils Landberg candlestick
« on: March 07, 2005, 06:17:12 AM »
Hello group.

I have recently purchased two orrefors pieces which the seller told me were "Tulip Glass" pieces by Nils Landberg.  However, while researching Tulip Glass, I read that they were partially colored.  As you can see in the photos, my pieces are clear.  On the other hand, the bases and the size appears similar.  I can't find anything like these pieces in my books.  They measure 14.25" tall and appear to inscribed on their bases "Orrefors 3973-111."

Here is the photo:

Does anyone out there recognize them?

Thanks,

Laura

It is almost impossible to get data about production work from 1960 to 1980. It is my opinion these are
Nil L. candlesticks. The long stems are extremely difficult
to create. The tops are similar to designs I have seen at Orrefors.
Although most of the Tulip forms have color, the production crystal is generally clear.
Hope this helps.
Best

i saw something similar on the Swedish site Antikprat, and allegedly it was NL production items made at Sandvik - the tableware maker in the Orrefors group

Yes, they are marked "Orrefors 3973-111."  I might be a bit off on the numbers, as they are small and my eyes are bad.  Does that number give any clues?

Thanks,

Laura

I thought you might be interested in seeing your candlesticks on E-Bay Number 7306640034 which is
an offer under Orrefors for Tiffany & Co. 4 days left.
Please note: Tiffany & CO take products and box them as their own.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the link.  

However, not only is the shape of the top different, but the ebay link has the newer, all capital letters ORREFORS stamp while my piece has an engraved Orrefors signature, with a number, like the Orrefors art glass I've seen. I think that my pieces are older.

Best,

Laura

Laura: I agree your work is older. Your glass is probably made in the early or middle 1960's. The number sequence in the book
"Swedish Glass Factories" shows the last number sequence 3817 in 1960.
