Orrefors or Steuben (?) Unsigned Bowl
« on: December 26, 2010, 03:27:09 PM »
This piece reminds me of either Orrefors or Steuben, circa 1950s but it's unsigned.  Seemed I've had this piece once before in the past, so maybe it's not uncommon.  Any help would be appreciated.

Its from Sweden. Bought one of these years ago (they came in three sizes) mine was 8" variety & daughter has it now. Unfortunately the only label was a foil blue & silver deal that simply said 'hand made in Sweden" with no manufacturer. I still run across them in the malls every now & then, but its usually the small 4" variety & they also came in blue & the shading of the blue reminded me of Strombergshyttan's  blue, but who knows? Because of the design there really isn't any room for a signature. Ken

I believe it is by Edvard Hald, designed in the 1940s and in production at Orrefors until at the very least the 1970s. I have several sizes, both in clear and in aqua.
