In Ivo's book it says that 'H' is the code for an ashtray. Unfortunately it doesn't give a list of the date codes (the numbers following the 'H') for ashtrays.

The design looks very much by Gerda Strömberg to me, based on other pieces of hers I own - but that's just a guess.

Yup, that's what I've got too, from "Glas in Schweden 1915-1960" but I do have the date codes, I think
H: 1935-36, highest number =2
    1941                            =23
    1944                            =26
     1947                           =26
    1954                           = 44
    1962                            =91
This really doesn't help, does it? Or does it :huh:
Some of you guys probably have this book, but I'll write the text anyway. If there are spelling mistakes, please excuse, I only have my German from when I was at school, many, many moons ago!
"Die seit 1933 in der hĂŒtte entstandenen GlĂ€sersind in der regel nur mit modellnummer in Diamantris signeret. Gelegentlich ist in Screibschrift S:hyttan,S-hyttan Strömberg oder Strömbergshyttan hinzugefĂŒgt. Es sind auch einige StĂŒcke ohne Modellnummer, aber mit Jahrezahl bekannt. Die Datierungen wurden vornehmlich in den ersten drei Jahren der Produktion (1933 - 1935)angebracht. DIe Modellnummer setzt sich aus einem Kennbuchstaben fĂŒr den GefĂ€s- oder Artikeltyp und einer Zahl zusammen. Begonnen wurde jede Reihe mit nr.1 Die jeweils höchste Modellnummer der verschiedenen im SmĂ„lands museum VĂ€xjö archivierten Produktionskataloge ermöglicht als Terminus ante quem die annĂ€hernde Datiering der EntwĂŒrfe."
