Hi,
This vase is signed Skruf by Bengt Edenfalk but does anyone know the pattern name?

Lovely vase Al :mrgreen:  I'm afraid I don't know the pattern name though.  I've had 3 Bengt Edenfalk for Skruf vases - all very different in style - and they were all gorgeous.  I believe one of the Leslie Pina Scandi glass books (sorry I don't have them yet - Birthday pressie this year I hope) has some info and photos of Bengt Edenfalk's work....

Hi Pip,

Yeah it's a cracker and in mint condition too!
Thanks for your comments and that sounds like yet another book I need......
I now have a new shop in Reading so if you are ever out this way please do pop in.

Cheers Al@mid20c

ps. I often check out your website and you always have great glass........

Cheers Al  ;) 

I've seen your ME page on eBay and noticed you had a new retail outlet - it's entirely possible that hubby and I will drop in at some point and say hello (us vintage/retro dealers need to stick together!)

By the way, the two Leslie Pina books are:-

Scandinavian Glass 1930-2000: Fire & Sea
Scandinavian Glass 1930-2000: Smoke & Ice

I've been promising myself these two for the best part of two years but as soon as I have the money spare to buy them an unexpected bill or expense arises.  Hubby has promised me them both for my birthday in October (he wants them too).
