help with interesting orrefors piece
« on: February 12, 2010, 01:55:04 PM »
 
Hi

 
I'd be very grateful if anyone out there could help me to identify an interesting piece of Orrefors glass which I bought in Glasgow this week, and I really like.

It is a small clear cube about 5cm along each side, with 2 clear bubbles included in it - one in the shape of a horizontal ring like a ribbon, the other a vertically elongated globe in it's centre. basically it looks a bit like a flying saucer, set in a clear glass block.
 
The maker's mark on it looks like:  ORREFORS B 3787-121, (or could be 1L1, or ILI).
 
I'd be really appreciate any ideas on the designer, date, information about the design etc.

Many thanks,

 
Ralph.

The designer was Gunnar Cyren and appear in the 1960 Orrefors catalog when he joined the company as a designer.

Actually there are two forms

BA3786 with a size of 25 x 35 mm

BA3787 with a size of 60 x 60 mm

They both are cubes with the oval ring in air in the center.

Hi Bill -

Many thanks for taking the time to get back to me.

Does this piece have a name? or even, any financial value?

Is there anywhere I can find a copy of the catalogue on-line?

Thanks again,

Ralph.
