Orrefors-experts, we need you!
« on: November 05, 2010, 06:38:33 PM »
Hi fellow glasslovers!

I bought this vase in Norway (Oslo) today. Since I'm from Gran in Hadeland, I thought it was a vase from Hadeland Glassverk. I later realized that the vase was signed. It says, I think, "Of. B 2952".

Does this mean it's a vase from Orrefors in Sweden? And does anybody know what B 2952 stands for?

Hoping for answers. :)

Thank you so much! That was very helpful! I bought the vase for two dollars at a flea market, so looks like a good investment then... :)

And exellent norwegian! We're impressed! God jul til deg også! Thanks again!

P is right. B would have been Gunnar Cyren.
