Hi,

Picked this up thinking it was a truly modern piece, maybe Ikea item and was amazed it revealed Kosta Boda number 324.

It has age related wear to the base, but I know so little about the more modern pieces.  Has anyone any info as to the approx age of the item, or the relevance of the numbers please. ( I guess it signifies the range?)

All info and assistance always appreciated, thanks Sharron

me too...!

I don't think 324 conforms with KB production numbering.

Thanks Martyn,

So are we saying someone has done a bit of scribbling on the base?

You know, When I washed it I was worried about some water that had somehow got into the base of foot.  There is a tiny pinprick of a hole dead centre on the base.

What a fool am I ......

I'd have said M&S early to mid noughties, a vibro pen plus a little creative thinking!  :P
Very noughty indeed!

Agreed, although the only creative thinking was rearranging the numbers 2, 3, 4....

Sometimes the colour on these is just sprayed on and scratches off if you take a wire scouring pad to it....might be worth a go in this case.!

I saw two of these on a flea market last Saturday - unsigned.
One had a hole in the base like you describe it, the other one
was closed.
I wonder if they might be Krosno / Poland?

Hi,

Thanks guys- thankfully only paid £1.50 for it from our car boot. Also the seller had partially removed an auction label.... (more , thought it was too good to be true, and the inscribing seemed a tad amateurish! Anyway only have "none-scratch" scourers in this house, so have left well alone BUT in daylight you can see a fine misty covering on the glass which presumably is the spray?

So if I had all these red flags ringing- why did I buy it? not even partial to the colour.  Guess we can't resist a bargain.  Still chuffed with my other car boot purchase though, the Orrefors bowl which is labelled and signed authentically and that cost me £1.

Thanks once again for all your help and comments, Sharron  ;)
