He said that the designs dated to c.1957-1960. Would this be about right?

that was my understanding, too.

IMO not Hoglund.
Ofcourse I could have missed it, but I have 3-400 pieces from hoglund, several productions catalogues, i have worked at Boda, and see Hoglund pieces daily, this is a piece that I have never seen unfortunately.

So nobody better placed to write the book than you! When can we look forward to it?

its actually on its way together with Leslie P.

PS. I will never claim to be an expert in the field. All I say is only my opinion.

Really wish I'd pushed the boat out on the glasses now. But... win some / lose some.

That is what I love about hindsight....  It is always 20/20

Just think of the feeling of joy and accomplishment you will feel when you finally find the glasses in about 18 years.   ::)   :thup:

Personally, on a side note...  I have never understood a seller that would split up a "matching" (their word) set. They manage to stay together and complete for 50 years, and then someone decides to send them on their separate ways.   :huh:  :spls: :huh:

My guess is that with the pieces together it would have brought more than the sum of the parts.....

Curious that my Californian friend has very similar signed examples - but then I suppose a lot of companies were producing terribly similar forms. So it seems attribution is back in the air, although a lot of the decanter's quirks do seem to indicate a Höglund or at least 'inpsired by-' design.

That said, my collection of Lütken glass has, over the years, extended to probably more than 1,000 pieces and still I'm constantly surprised by obscure or overlooked designs that emerge on the secondary market!

Craig - I used to be the same, loathing to break sets up, but recently I've found that some sets are impossible to sell together and have taken to breaking them up into individual glasses. The only line I draw is if they come in their original box - then come hell or high water, they get marketed as a complete set.

Needless to say, I have an attic full of boxed sets of glasses.  ::)

I can understand selling broken apart if an attempt has been made to keep together.....   seems many sellers though, just split them up and run with it.....

Not so many - not the rustic type in high quality which was pioneered by Höglund.  Maastricht, Leerdam, Lynngaard and Holmegaard jump to mind - but it is obviously none of those.  I don't really know how you can say no to an attribution unless you have a positive alternative....

here are some pics of stuff that are similar. All by EH.

But IMO that doesnt make all brown glass EH.

The yellow stopper is something that I have never seen on any EH design.

Some great photos there, and some great pieces. Thanks for sharing.

RE: the stopper. It is actually the same colour as the glass used in the decanter. If I peer through the top of the decanter the base, where the glass is lightest, it is an exact match for the stopper in colour - it appears more yellow in my images because they're lit from behind with very strong lighting.

The decanter is cased in a pale amber over the top of the darker bubbled glass, and the stopper seems to be made up entirely of this outer colour (or, most likely, has a clear glass core). The colours and overall gradiated effect are present in some of the items in your second grouping.

Not that I'm saying this is concrete proof of anything!
