There is a gentlemen named W. Johansson who lives in the small village of Orrefors, Sweden and signs his variety of
art glass with his name and Orrefors.
He has not been associated with the Orrefors Crystal Group as a designer or glass blower or engraver as far as I can tell in my visits to the Orrefors archives and many visits and studies at the Orrefors Glass School.
PS. The owners of the Orrefors Crystal Group now want to sell the archives of Orrefors which includes examples of historic art glass, production records of Orrefors. Gullaskruv, Flygsfors, and other companies purchased under prior owners. The projected sale price is 32,000,000 SK and I do not know how this value was developed. The national
government is not interested in saving this important cultural treasure. Anyone know a banker??? I can talk to about buying the archives.
