Hi Carolglass,
I don't have a Kedelv signature, but I do have signatures from genuine Coquille pieces.

Flygsfors 57: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7875
Coquille:       http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7874

Found on a really heavy bowl.
I also have a signed vase, but again, no Kedelv signature on that either.

Many thanks Della for the information, your signatures qualify part of my query but the Kedelv part still has me wary on the particular piece I am interested in. You have a stunning collection, puts my glass into perspective I can tell you! Many thanks again regards Carol

Hi again, Carolglass,
Here is a Kedelv signature for you to see: http://www.modernistglass.com/glasspieces/view/1981 Just scroll sown a little.

Thank you for your compliments too  ;D The photos are only a small amount of my collection, but the total amount of the shapes that I have, up to now. I have different sizes and colours of most of the vases pictured. I think that the name for it is "addiction."  :P

Except I wouldn't be terribly convinced that Flygsfors and Kedelv were engraved by the same person

Hi Christine,  ;D

I would have thought the same too, had I not got a vase where the Coquille and the Flygsfors 57 seemed to have been engraved by different hands. I can't say that the one I linked too is definitely signed by Kedelv, but between 1949-56 pieces were signed Kedelv and Flygsfors + date. As this one is signed 55 and the Flygfors is definitely right, I would assume that Kedelv is right too.

Hi Della, Cristine,

I'm interested by this...I have'nt had many Flygsfors pieces so am not qualified to comment really but keen to learn.....the marks on the linked site looks very clumsy - very different from yours Della - is thier piece a known Kedelv design?

The Flygsfors marks I have seen are flowing and not stuttering and stiff like that one. Does the area around the 'Kedelv' look cleaner and with a different grinding direction to the rest of the base shown??

If I saw that I'm sure I would be suspicious, would I be wrong?  ???

Hi Martyn,
Yes, this is definitely a known Flygsfor design. I mentioned that I had a vase where the signatures are not made by the same hand either, or maybe by someone who was having a bad day, but they are definitely right. Here are the signatures on my vase, and you can see what I mean.

The ones that I showed in the post above (not the one signed Kedelv) are on the underside of a bowl, which is mine btw.  ;)

Such a wealth of information on this board from some very generous member sharing their knowledge. This has raised some pertinant questions-when did flygsfors change from script to capitals or viceversa in their I.D.'s The object of my desire has capitals for flygsfors 55 and kedelv. Thanks again regards Carol
re the post for modernist glass I know Peter and Viv also Glen very well and their items are usually true to type.

I can't answer that, sorry, but I can say that I haven't seen Flygsfors written in capital letters. I have seen it written in lower case (non-script) letters. That doesn't mean that capitals weren't used however, but I am not qualified or knowledgeable enough to give you an answer. I wish that I could be of more help.
