I agree to either Elme or Empoli and tend toward the latter. The triangular shape with the long neck was popular in the sixties, Nason did a Corroso version of it. The colour is plain blue, but not cobalt.

Here are some Gullaskruf vases  :huh: I found at 20thC Glass . None of which have a triangular shape ....but some of the necks are similar .

   http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/scandinavian_glass/gullaskruf_glass/gullaskrufglass_home.html

I would recommend against using this list for attributing Gullaskruf bud vases. I have collected Gullaskruf glass for quite some time now, and have about 20 Arthur Percy bud vases that I am sure of, but I would say that perhaps only one or two of these are actually from Gullaskruf. Not only are the proportions wrong, most of the colors shown on the page were never even used at Gullaskruf, so most of these are probably from one of the other glass works that produced similar vases (e.g. Ã…seda, Elme or perhaps Lindshammar).

As regards the triangular one, you see quite a lot of these in Sweden, and I believe that I have seen some with Elme labels.

 :hi:
Hi cjf, can you tell me if I'm correct in thinking the Gullaskruf ones are the ones with rather narrow rims and an elegant, sweeping transition between the bottom and the neck, rather than a very round bottom with the neck sitting on top?

Well, it is a bit difficult to put it into words, especially for a non native speaker, but in general terms I would agree. I would also hazard to guess that 99% of the bud vases produced at Gullaskruf was in one of their standard colors, which are those depicted below with the addition of clear and opaline glass.

Thank-you very much, cjf.
That set of colours is very useful indeed.  :thup: :thup: :thup:

I'm now a little more in doubt about whether my broken (by copper lobster) one was Gullaskruf after all - it was the right shape, but it was a lovely olive green. I still miss it, no matter what it was. :cry:
