höganäs glasbruk - w.j.?
« on: November 03, 2010, 03:00:54 PM »
hello all,

does anybody know who "W.J." is? I have a höganäs glasbruk vase (see pic) signed "W.J" - the only W.J. i know is hadeland's willy johansson but to my knowledge he didn't work in sweden, so that's quite unlikely I guess :-)

any help is much apppreciated

best regards,

Have a look at this thread:,36822.0.html, perhaps it is another item signed by the hairdresser Walter Johansson.
