Hi Tony,
The 'J. O. Lake' is John Orwar Lake. He was there c. 1953 - 1976. Unsure about the other numbers, maybe a pattern / model / production number ??

Hope this helps :D  :D

Hi Tony.  Fabulous vases you have there!  "My" Ekenas (that is, when I get my hands on it!) is a different design.

Its about 3.5" high and is marked in the same way as yours on the base, but I will have to find out what the number is as its about 350 miles away at my son's house - so I'll have to get me push bike out :lol:

One just sold on eBay but for very little money and I wish I had bid on it.  It would have been nice to have a "matching" pair - and I just love the colours and texture.  Reminds me of the sea.

The little slashes are dots to go over the A like this EKENÄS

Excellent close ups of the signatures Tony, which also show great detail of the colors and internal decor.

Ekenas was founded in 1917 by two former workers from Orrefors. The factory has had several noteable glassblowers amongst its staff including Edvin Ollers (1940-47) and Micahel Bang during the 1960s (more famous for his work at the Danish firm Holmegaard). The Ekenas factory closed in 1976.

Tony thanks for the link. I have looked at this before (I think Anne has it in the GlassLinks library). There is a whole lot of Ruda Glasbruk on there now, on the subject of which there was a thread recently. Some nice Erik Höglund too.
