Orrefors rectangular vase
« on: July 16, 2010, 10:04:17 AM »
The vase below seems to have the marks "orrefors P 4234.121" .  Does this mean by Sven Palmqvist sometime in the 60s or 70s?

Hi:

I would have expected the P (for Sven Palmqvist, as you say) to be followed by a "A" for cut glass. I guess you're certain you have read the inscription  correctly. My guess would be mid to late 60's but I'd like to see a photo of the base if possible.

Nice piece, btw.

Hi

There is a tall square version of this listed in Smoke & Ice pg 86. Def Sven Palmqvist but no dating info provided.

Cheers!
