Hi, I have this, and it is signed but I do not know who it is?  It kinda looks like Murano glass, but not sure -- so I will ask if anyone knows what this it is.  (Good or Bad)   :-\

Hope I did OK when I got it.  I like it...so I guess thats all that matters  :-\

The upsidedown signature in the photograph is Flygsfors... a Swedish firm. The other is likely for Paul Kedelv, but it's hard to make out.

Sure, here is one pf the pixs.  My camera isn't a big fancy camera.  I just picked this up last weekend ( with all the other stuff).  This was the second last thing I bought....and she gave me a deal on the price too.

Here you go....I just wanted it cuz it had a signature on it....

Let me know...OK



(Try this again...said was too large...whoops..and not the fastest - one handed injury) :-\


ADD:
Finally...I had to try three times - do not know what I did wrong, as I thought re-sized...but kept saying too large ???

I tried some **powder** to the signature here to help. ( now I got powder dust all over....  )

Does this help any better?  And hope they are not too big to add here ( :-\ )  Any ideas at all?

Nic was right - a Coquille bowl by Paul Kedelev of Flysgors. The range was launched in 1952 and produced until well into the 1960s.   ;D Well done  :hiclp:

Is that good then ?

I thought it looked like Italian glass, and when I turned it over and saw a signature (didn't care who it was)...I just had to have it.  How does this compare (value, and desire, etc..) in the glass world?

I hoped the *53* was a date, but then I am usually wrong  :-\  This is the correct date made -- then Lustrousstone?

Any more info?

It's very nice indeed!  I'm not sure about the date system, Nic will be able to fill you in, but rest assured you've got a great piece.

Speaking of signatures, I do love your new one :)

It's really not my field at all, but in Ivo's book it says that Flygsfors did date their wares in the signature after the factory name, and that, had it have been produced post-1956, it would also have been signed 'Coquille'.
