Searching for a replacement wine glass... please help!
« on: October 19, 2008, 04:22:27 AM »
Greetings all,

My partner just broke a wine glass from a set of inherited stemware, and we are hoping desperately to find a replacement.  We were told that this set is Scandinavian, most likely purchased in the 70s (but perhaps not).  I am hoping that someone here can identify the glass, or at least point me in the right direction to do some more research--I am not well versed on this topic.  Pictures are below.

Please help  :huh:  Thank you!

Or you could try Janne in Malmø ( Sweden ); it would probably be less expensive  ;)
