Swedish Glass Factories: Production Catalogues, 1915-1960.
« on: November 02, 2005, 08:26:49 PM »
I have a query please on Krakka glass devised by Sven Palmqvist whilst at Orrefors, I believe the answer may lie in the book by Helmut Ricke and Lars Thor, Swedish Glass Factories: Production Catalogues, 1915-1960

Can some one who ownes this weighty thome please let me know some of the production dates for this technique...? I am particullary interested in the early codes. Many Thanks.  :)

Hi,

Perhaps a weighty tome is not needed? Ivo's glass fact file a-z lists the ranges of codes and dates for Kraka art glass.

Do you have specific code numbers that you need dates for?

Swedish Glass Factories: Production Catalogues, 1915-1960 doesn't cover Kraka (just checked).

A better bet would be Orrefors, a Century of Swedish glassmaking.

It says that starting in 1960, kraka was brought into series production, and certain model numbers were produced in long series from 1960 to 1986, marked P or PU and the serial number. P449 isn't one specifically named. However 1963's output was numbered 444 - 450, so I'd guess from this period.

However, if you're talking about a very early piece signed Orrefors Sweden P440 Sven Palmqvist (probably just clear and white honeycomb with no bubbles) but no "Kraka" then this is a different story.

Any chance you could post a pic, or e'mail to me and I'll post (e'mail on memberlist).

I have just bought a book taylog1 and saw a picture in there that imterested me, Scandinavian Ceramics and glass 1940's to 1980's by George Fischler and Barrett Gould, published by Schiffer. PAGE # 136.  This book is readily available on ebay $38 ish and in it is a picture for copy write reasons I cant post here, but if you mail me (I checked your profile...) I will gladly forward it on to u if you dont have the book I am refering to. You last reply confused me a bit as I am struggling to invisage white in clear with no blue as Kraka, can u post a pic? Thanks for the reply  :)

I've seen the book, but don't have it - any good ?

There's another book (only in German) by Helmut Ricke (Swedish Glass I think - posting from work so I can't check to be certain) - it's got a picture of a v similar bowl (same signature) and describes it as prototype Kraka.

Hi, no the book is not all that...but it was cheap! it has 75% ceramics, pictures mostly more than biog's or factory info, I wouldn't bother with it to be honest. Thanks for the pic of the bowl, that is interesting, I do recall seeing a shallow bowl/dish once like that, I do like a bit od blue in my glass if I can get it though...lol. Thanks for all your help though.  :)
