To be quite honest I had not thought about how it was made I dont recall seeing any "seams".

Good evening:

Someone raised the question of the form with the green label is not signed. Orrefors did not sign seconds.

Thank you Bill, but we were discussing another piece, I think you were the one that pointed out the fact that the green labels were seconds and who would expect seconds to be signed?.

Also my friend picked me up a present, they still have the stickers on them they were made in Poland from a Danish design and they contain the "open bubble", which I read was a characteristic often used by Wirkkala in his designs.

Irene, don't be fooled by the open bubble in the base. :)  Wirkkala did some stuff using this, but so did/do the Krosno glassworks in Poland, and so still do some of the Chinese makers, notably sold within the last few years in Marks & Spencer.

Anne thank you so much for your kind response and a reminder of "Marks & Sparks", its been years since I have been there.
As for  being fooled about glass I usually ????? have a good eye as I collect all kinds of glass and I also make things with glass.
It is good to hear from someone from home.
Sometimes I think I would sell my soul (kidding) for a good bag of Fish and chips with a couple of pickled onions. Oh now I'm hungry LOL.
I think therefore I am
