Date this AFORS gold/green label? (blue opalescent cup)
« on: September 22, 2006, 07:21:39 PM »
Recently found two cups and a creamer with this label on one cup.  I've figured out that Afors merged with Kosta&Boda and became Kosta Boda in 1976, but I'm hoping I can narrow down the date of manufacture.  Appreciate any info or direction to search in.  I looked through the archives here, and searched Afors also, but haven't found this label yet.  thanks for looking!!

This label was used, as far as I know, during the 1950's. Sorry I can't come closer than that. Will post if I find a more accurate date.
