if you have a scanner you can use that for the sig. It often works (not always though)

OF refers to Orrefors.

H refers to Edward Hald

A refers to refers to cut glass - meaning it is not crystal and has been engraved

1852 will be the basic design shape and probably means it was registered first in about 1937

/5 may be a size or engraved design code.  This latter I am not sure which is relevant.

John I suggest you look at

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,36238.msg196892.html#msg196892

where you get input from Daniel(who is Swedish and much more of an expert than I) as well.  On reading again the /5 refers to the type of object eg. /2 = bowl.  Ppresumably /5 refers to a vase or tumbler.

to DanielS

In regards to this thick tumbler as I call it.  What does the following  letters mean when its in the lower key ie
of N1906  then followed by I think a small h 4,5.   Compared to the other OF HA 1852/5.

Is the designers initial in lower case or CAPITAL.  This is getting quite confusing for me.

If it is of N1906  - would this be by Nils Landberg??  or OF HA 1852/5  - this would be E  Hald???

DanielS  please help and try to decipher my brain drain here!!!!! :huh:

 :hi: John,

If you agree, I'll move this piece to the Scandinavian glass section, where Daniel is more likely to see it, and also change the title a little to get his attention. :) Let me know you've read this first though - otherwise you might think your thread has vanished and wonder why.
