If you are Ivo Haanstra, allow me to thank you for your wonderfully complete and authoritative book, Glass Fact File A-Z. Although the teeny, tiny print challenges my old eyes, it is worth it.
The reason I asked about Swedish milk glass is that a friend recently purchased a milk glass hen on nest dish that bears a label that says "Made in Sweden." This is the first time I have ever seen any reference to glass hen on nest dishes being made in Sweden.
Since it is so easy to mislabel something, I wanted to try and verify if any Swedish company had made pressed milk glass items.
The hen dish that my friend bought closely resembles the von Streit #640 ("Plumed Warrior") covered dish except for slight variation in size, detail of tail and feathering, and the footring of the base being without any design whatsoever.
I know very little about Swedish glass. About all I know is that most of their glass is of the "arty" (modern-looking) type, that it is usually clear, mostly blown. I do not know if they made covered dishes. The only glass animals that I have seen from Sweden are figurines (one-piece).
It is difficult to research glass hen on nest dishes (and probably any glass item) since one soon runs out of material to look at. There seems to be only a finite number of company catalogs, wholesale dealer catalogs, books, and magazine articles. One hits a blank wall quite quickly.
Thank you for your reply.
