What to do with an Eda cut vase
« on: June 16, 2007, 01:12:18 AM »
This cut Eda vase is 9" tall.  It is signed and dated 1937.  My problem is, I don't know what to do with it.  None in active or sold on Ebay US or UK that I can find, and none in online shops.  Is it just not collectable?  Does it have any value?  Thanks for looking.

Ah that old question, "Does it have any value" Everything has value, it all depends on how you arrive at that value and who would want it. Being what I hope to become, a serious collector of Scandinavian glass your piece really drew my attention. Of course my first action was to hit the books. Eda Glassworks seems to be one of those companies that has been overlooked. It draws only one mention in Pina but that mention is very interesting. Gerda Stromberg the wife of Edward Stromberg designed for Eda between 1927-1933.
The Strombergs of course are well known in Scandinavian glass.
Ivo's book gives a very good description of the company history and what and when they produced.
I would say what you have is a very nice piece of historical glass to a serious Scandinavian collector.
Hope this gives you some insight, Terry

I've written a lot about Eda Glasbruks - especially in "A Century of Carnival Glass". Their history etc., plus of course, their Carnival. There is also a lot - in Swedish - by Gunner Lersjo - that covers their entire production.

For a brief look at Eda, including some old factory photos, see my website:

Just released—Carnival from Finland & Norway e-book!
Also, Riihimäki e-book and Carnival from Sweden e-book.
Sowerby e-books—three volumes available
