Info on Royal Krona Sweden
« on: March 08, 2013, 09:25:20 PM »
I recently found 2 modern bowls with a Royal Krona Sweden sticker but no other marks or signature.  To date the only info I can find on the company suggests it is/was a conglomerate of a number of firms.  Any idea where I can check on designers and/or company history?

Thanks,
Jeff

Thank you for the reference but these pictures suggest to me a design which is at least midcentury or more likely 70's-80's.

Thanks,
Jeff

They are def not 1980's as Royal Krona Group went bankrupt in 1977

This technique was originally launched by Kjell Blomberg at Gullaskrufs glassworks in the late 60s, then under the name "Printura". When Gullaskruf joined Royal Krona in 1972, the production was (according to the information I have received from people in the village) moved to the so called "Krona Ateljé" at Ĺseda glassworks, and they changed the name of the series to "Sierra". So some time between 1972 and 1977 would be right for this one.
