Identification of lable on a bird
« on: June 12, 2009, 04:41:02 PM »
I searched previous posts, and found a discussion about a small blue and white lable with only " Made in Sweden" attributed to Kosta.  Problem is, the picture is gone.  Does anyone know the maker of this bird, or lable?  Thanks for looking.

a generic label - it will not disclose the maker. In the previous discussion you mention it was probably found on a piece from Sea Glasbruk - the other glasshouse located in the town of Kosta. Not sure who cooked your bird, though.

I just noticed these little devils are dichroic neodymium glass.  Does that help pin down a maker, or did many Swedish glass makers make this type glass?
