Orrefors Signature Advise
« on: June 11, 2009, 04:18:07 AM »
Hello, I have a few pieces of Orrefors from a friend of the family.  I am trying to decipher the signatures on most of them.  Hopefully someone can help me.  Thanks in advance.  This is the first:

Hmm, I do have two strombergshyttan vases, and they have the labels still in place, so I had no problem deciphering those.  I didn't realize this could also be strombergshyttan.  Thanks for the input.  I tried to add a picture and couldn't get one smaller than 125kb, I will try again.  Thanks for the welcome, as well as the advice.  I am very happy to recieving some help on these.  Within the next couple weeks, I will try to post the rest!  Thank You Again.

i´m rather not into cut/engraved glass normally, but this one really gave me a laugh. what a
nice motif with the chaser on one side and the reindeer on the other!
thanks for posting it!  :thup:
