Skruf Glasbruk - Sweden
« on: January 13, 2006, 02:08:31 PM »
Today, 1-13-06 it was reported that the Skruf Glasbruk in Sweden was
placed in bankruptcy.

It is a sad day for Swedish glass. There are only three glass works still
in the hands of Swedes: Pukeberg, Nybro, Målerås.

Orrefors, Kosta, Boda, Åfors, Sea are part of a large Swedish clothing group and Lindshammar and Johansfors are owned by the Norwegians.

:cry: Such is life! Will you be able to get the designs we all offered suggestions for made elsewhere?
