Orrefors or Kosta Vase?
« on: October 12, 2005, 03:32:47 PM »
Hi all,
I have this vase that is signed Gf.P.3826. and some scratched initials looks like RG or BG. I was told that it is possibly Kosta, but I've researched quite a bit and could not find anything. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! I'm not quite sure how to post a pic, but I'll try.
