No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Help with the maker
« on: April 04, 2010, 09:15:39 AM »
Hi when i picked this up my first thought was Orrefors, but that is not what it says on the base. Has anyone got any idea as to who made it?
It is well made nice & heavy & stands about 4 1.2 inches tall.

Dave,
i think it looks like Goran Warff, he is quite collectible, mostly worked with Kosta Boda,
he had a few years on the Starship Enterprise under Captain Picard, but returned to his first love of
making Fine Art Glass in Sweden.

 >:( Andy, don't make jokes like that. It'll end up on eBay, the myth will explode, then it will get into an obit somewhere and it'll be all your fault. Feel guilty yet? >:D
