Pukeberg Glass Works is in operation in Nybro, Sweden.
There are two glass blowers and the Orrefors and Kosta
Boda Glass Schools.
I do not think they have any of the old sculptures so you will have to go to the secondary market.

Interesting, I only recently obtained the first one (on the right in Ivo's photo) complete with label. Also took a fancy to Pukeberg 'solifleur' vases, so it's time to clear another shelf!

None of those.  He doesn't wear a helmet.  I've only ever seen one and that was at an antiques and collectors fair at Detling, Maidstone.

Is this the one you're looking for? He's Skruf not Pukeberg apparently, but he doesn't seem to have a helmet. http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-234

I've just spotted another Pukeberg figure who may be the boy viking?  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7363388410

Does that look like a Nils Holgersson or not?

I came across a large (10") Pukeberg Viking on a flea market the other day, but @ twenty pounds I left him alone.

Ummmm no idea Ivo. My viking says Uno Westerberg - I haven't seen any other names connected with these.

Nils Holgersson, a mischevious boy who is bewitched into a dwarf, learns about nature, geography and folklore while flying with his barnyard goose from Sweden to Lapland.  Original title: Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige, 1906. Author: Selma Lagerlöf. Status: ranks higher than Winnie the Pooh in England. Absolute cult status in Sweden, even better known than Pipi Langström and Peter Pan.
