Little Red Glass Bowl, Made By...................?

This is another I have listed as uhhhhhhhhhhhmmm, not sure :lol:

It has  a really lovely smooth finish, which looks slightly milky on the outside, it looks red, but when the light shines through it in a certain way it looks more orangy,the base has had the pontil polished.

I don't know if its English, Swedish, Italian, none of these, but this I do like :D

Any remains of scribbling visible? Orrefors PU ####/# perhaps?

Hi Ivo,

There is nothing at all, but there is a lot of wear around the edge of the base, so might it have worn off, or become obscured?

I would have expected a Palmqvist number but there you have it: sig obliterated, answer not forthcoming!

I don't care if the sig or whatsit isn't there, I like it :wink:

You belive it is Orrefors, made in the 1960's ? Yes? Please? Have got a bargain for a change?
