(Sorry, no salutation - how rude) Hi, out there... I wish I could spend much more time here, but my browser is so slow, I mostly get around for research.

I've had these for quite a while and always thought the color and clarity were spectular, then found this sample (5022B) at:

This is the closest I've seen... I saw a few "unsigned" Boglund pieces out there, but they were well-known pieces - can anyone add anything to this? Thanks!!

I'm sure I've seen something like this signed by Bertil Vallien

Thanks, kisslikeether

These are not soda glass, right?

They don't have the fizzy, cloudy  texture of the few similar pieces of Vallien I could find. A lot of his work looks very tactile.
