Geoff:

Thanks for the explanation. I'm at the stage in collecting where a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, so I appreciate the details you've added.

Hello again David
Knut Bergqvist was the real inventor of the Graal technique in 1916. He was one of the first taken on at Orrefors in August 1914 after Ekman bought the glassworks. He worked at Orrefors until some time in 1929 when he set up on his own at a little glassworks nearby called Lindefors. This is recorded in Agnes Hellner's diary. KB as a 'Gaffer' was a very important member of Orrefors' staff.
Unfotunately for KB Lindefors folded mainly as a result of the great depression in 1930 and was taken over by Edward Stromberg in 1933, thereafter becoming Strombergshyttan.

Thank you for all your responses and sorry for my late response.  :)

I am at the work at the moment and will post the dimensions this evening.
I think the width is approx. 25 cm.

The seller I bought the piece from was trustful to me.
So I don't have doubts.
The crack is from one to the other side of the foot.
It looks like the foot was dismantled and repaired.

I have contacted Bukowskis. Ms. Seeman believes that it would reach a price of approx. 4-5000SEK.

It is a great bowl and I think I will not sell it. The damage is invisible if the bowl is standing.

Possibly I will start to collect scandinavian glass, too. :)

Hald is the designer of this graal, not Simon Gate! S/Graal is just a trade-mark, registered on April 17, 1917.
This trade-mark was also used on graals designed of Knut Bergqvist himself, example Graal number 3: http://www.fotosidan.se/blogs/graal-blog/index.htm?date=2008-01-01
