Is the *last pic* the same Orange Vase as the other 2 pics (and as the Topic heading says) --- it looks different as in color, and signature (??)  Just curious...if another pic was posted by mistake

Hi:

The letters and the numbers make it a piece designed by Sven Palmqvist in 1956. The Orrefors catalogue has it in three heights:  135mm, 180m, and 225mm. The catalogue says it was only made in steel-gray. The colour of yours is a really unusual one for Orrefors, especially of that age. The shape is exactly right. Anybody with any suggestions?

The 1956 catalog for Orrefors shows the form was done in one color 31 = steel gray.

They might have used a different color when made at future dates but the colors  shown raise a question.

You need to post your second piece in a separate thread to avoid confusion and aid later filing of answered threads. As you can see it already puzzled Rose. See here http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,28213.0.html
