Did we get any further on label dates? I have just acquired two huge vases in clear cased white with silver labels - they're very Holmegaard

Good morning:

There are two red labels used by Orrefors. The first contains the Orre Bird surrounded by a wreath which was used between 1920's to 1950. It was a bright red.

The second red label contains the white Orre bird without the wreath. It started in 1960 and and I think ended  in 2000 when a new director wanted to make a name for himself. This was a darker red.
