Help with Orrefors 'Fuga'
« on: March 26, 2007, 04:52:09 PM »
I bought this vase recently from a charity shop  ;D - it's a lovely piece of glass and, fortunately, is marked to the base with 'Fuga Orrefors'. I've done a search on here and the web and know it's a 1953 design by Sven Palmqvist and that this range won the Grand Prix at the Milan Trienalle in 1957.  What I've not been able to ascertain though is the length of the production run - I think I read somewhere that they made these up until 1983 but now cannot find my source of information! Can anyone confirm this? TIA.

Ah - THAT'S where I must have read it then - I'm beginning to acquire such a big pile of reference books it's quite a trawl to look through them all for specific info. Thanks a lot  :)
