Not seen either of those variations before, thank you both.

Not sure what I would call the third one, other than the base looks a bit like a wooden lemon squeezer I was given the other day... :spls:

Any chance that this vase and lamp base are related? There is also this pale green one on ebay at present.

Turns out both of the vase and lamp are Aseda too, very last set of shelves here: http://www.50-talskeramik.se/2013/09/utstallning-aseda.html

Hi, like many others I always thought my decanters were by Bo Borgstrom or are mine slightly different?

I've attached a couple of photos and hope the separate stopper helps.  The glass is clear with a slight blue/green tinge, not quite as pronounced as some Holmegaard glass.

Is the name Börnevasen correct or is this a typo caused by different keys on non-English keyboards?

One of many internet propagated myths, your decanters were made by Aseda but the designer was Börne Augustsson not Bo Borgstrom.

Thanks John :).  Ebay can be helpful sometimes, but can also be responsible for a lot of mis-information.

 :o

Not just ebay - after reading that, I shoved "Bo Borgstrom" into google images - and a ton of these decanters showed up.  :'( >:( :'(

I'm thinking Börne Augustsson would not be well pleased either!   

I've got so much stuff I've been hoarding and can't identify and if I can't trust the internet, I'm wandering in the wilderness, dragging my treasures behind me (well wrapped of course).
