and the last ones for now....

I live in a small studio/flat so I am desperately trying to figure out how to display all the stuff. I want to be able to see them ALL. Have to look into building custom made shelves of some sort.

Wow -- great collection! And beautifully displayed!

Incredible what an amount of fabulous pieces can be found within a year if you are in the right country :)

If I would collect Strömbergshyttan, my collection would consist of a single piece (and that would have cost a fortune here).

Thank you. I know what you mean about spending a small fortune.... some pieces sell for ridiculous prices and sometimes I come across some for less. The last shark tooth, the biggest one, I found in an antique store for 10 euros just last week !!!!!

If anyone has something for sale that I am missing, please let me know !!!!

Wow! Lovely stuff, who are the faceted ones made by in the 1st photo??
I was thinking how lucky you are to have all those lovely window sills to display them on, but i realise youve
just done the displays for the photos, but they all look wonderful the way you have grouped them together

Thanks, the windows are great for arranging glass, its an old building that I live in. During the winter they are full of crystal, but in the summer I like to have my windows wide open 24-7 to let in the light and fresh air !

The diamond shapes are by Asta Strömberg.

I usually keep them on my glass table top.

 :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp:   This thread just gets better and better  :thup: well done Astrid.

Mikael - where do I need to take my next holiday?    Thanks - that is a real feast for the senses,  we have been spoilt over the months.  I'm in such a state of indecision that I haven't bought a piece of glass for the last few weeks.  I think I'm moving towards collecting one maker, but which????????????????????????????  Trouble is I want to grab it all... :hug:

It looks beautiful. I have not seen this one before, but it resembles the big round i have in one of my pictures. Mine has bubbles in it though.....
I have yet to find some litterature about Strömbergshyttan so I can find out the years and makers of the different pieces I pick up.
