My New Åseda Glasbruk Vase
« on: October 27, 2005, 01:05:49 AM »
I got a new Åseda vase today. It appears to be like many of the so called "jack in the pulpit" type ones at first glance.

It is completely clear but thats not too unusual. I have a few in clear. It also has a slightly fluted edge on the top and vaguely hexagonal base. This is common in the orange ones and I also have a sapphire blue coloured one like this.

The big difference with this one is that it has square and rectangular bubbles! Not round ones! I have never seen this before. It also has the later label. I think this denotes the time when Åseda were part of the Royal Krona group. Hence the crown on the label.

It is quite big and chunky compared to the standard ones. It is 10" tall and the base is 3" in diameter. I have had some others that size before.

I hope this is of interest.

Nice one, congrats. Which brings me to another question: has anyone ever seen the symbol on the label as a signature prunt?  The symbol is the old alchemist symbol for "glass" and was obviously used by various companies. I think Skruf used it, obviously Aseda used it on their labels - but as a prunt?

By rolling the base on square spikes I can only presume.

Could this have been what we saw happening at Formia on Murano last year?   See the end of my fourth posting at Visiting Murano; towards the end of this marathon, subsequently modified by my paragraph in blue.

They are too regular for being done by hand, it would have been a dipmould with square protrusions.

I have been checking back on the bubble technique. Moulds with the protrusions can be used as well as rolling the glass. Sandblasting indentations into the glass has also been done.

The glass is then dipped again the pot to cover the indentations with a new layer of glass which traps the air.

There is no doubt more to it than that technically but you get the idea.
