Suncatcher? - ID = Pukeberg
« on: December 12, 2005, 01:41:47 AM »
I found this a few weeks back and have been trying to find another like it to ID it. I don't think it's anything very special in terms of maker, but I like it! Has anyone come across these before please? Any suggestions as to maker? (click thumbnail to see larger image)

Hi Anne
The central motif on this is the same (i think) as a bock vase / solifleur I have which I think is by Walther.
But I'm having difficulty finding any notes or even a pic of it and its packed away at the mo.

Thanks Peter and Della. I don't think my suncatcher is from the same stable to be honest.

A similar type of suncatcher on eBay is listed as Kosta Boda, designed by Bertil Vallien. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330231590495

Can anyone confirm or otherwise that mine may be Kosta as well please?

<sigh> another wishful ebay attribution. I could just about believe Lindshammar but not Kosta...

Thanks Ivo, that explains why I couldn't find them anywhere else connected to Bertil Vallien!  >:D

Christine, yours must be from the same maker as well... we'll track 'em down one day!  :P
