Wow!!  How lovely!!

(I am so proud of myself, 'cos I thought it was 'something Engmann' but couldn't make out the K,  I thought it might be a W.  I always try to guess or research before I look at other replies as I learn better that way.......I think I do anyway.)

But above all,  I think it is a beautiful jug. What a wonderful find. :rah:

thank thank thank you all.  I went on a hunch as it was engraved with something that I couldn't understand and thought I would be ale to read it without the volunteer breathing down my neck.  Then when i got home I still couldn't read it and spend ages putting all sorts of options in Google.  Next time I am starting off in Scandinavia. :phew:
Dont worry about the lamp cord it was for photo options only.  ::)
I think this can now be put in the resolved section.

Thats it exactly.  Who would of thought that something like this Kjell Engman Cancan for Kosta Boda jug would turn up in a charity shop in south Kincumber NSW Australia?. I did pay a fair price for it so neither the shop nor I got ripped off.

Yay!!  This is why glass collecting is so addictive!!  It is beautiful, fragile, and from time to time, a real special piece comes your way. :sun:
