Hello.

Was wondering if anyone recognised this? It looks familiar, but I can't place it, or make it out.

Pics vanished, but they would have been in violation of copyright. Thread retained for info.

It would be helpful if you posted a pic of the glass too, Pinkspoons.
Cheers Ruth

T'is 21cm high - and almost Holmegaard-ish in shape. And the neck is cylindrical - those are just reflections making it seem shaped.

I don't recognise the glass at all but the first word looks like ampullo or ampulla and that fits with the tubular structure!
 How intriguing. Good luck.
Ruth  :)

I'm intrigued :?   The mark looks like an incorrect spelling for Humppila except that I can only see one 'p' and what looks like two 'l's.  ??? :?
What auction are you looking at?

Hi Pink,

That is a strange one, as I am sure u know Bengt Edenfalk did this applied thread work whilst at skruff, the signature could be construde as edenfalk but I think the factory could be read as Oy Kumela...but edenfalk only worked at skruf and kosta boad, the kumela factry however are famous for there bottles..! One of my favourite designers/craftsman that worked at kumela was Armando Jacobino (it could b his sig) a very independent individual who undoubtebly would not be averse to trying a technique he had seen elsewher for himself...(he was one of gunnel nymans best impersonators whilst a nuutajarvi) his work would have been signed jacobino oy kumela  :)

Oh, the photos have gone. How odd.

But I managed to find out what it was...

Bengt Edenfalk at Skruf!

I didn't bid on the vase after all, though - I got distracted by some Holmegaard (the story of my life, really).
