Add my voice of envy re Swedish Glass Factories, whose name Taylog so casually drops. There was one from Holland on Ebay this weekend that went for about 260 pounds. I'm still kicking myself for not going higher. (I think the seller had been offering it as a BIN for way more for quite a time.) Is it worth that much, Gareth? If so, you'd think someone would do a cheap reprint.
If the people who signed the Kosta and Orrefors pieces had only known how much attention we would give to every number, I'll bet they could have had some fun. We should run a contest for the most likely, least likely, and more creative but possible explanation for the "27." Or is that what we have been doing?
