Does anyone know if there are any books  about Fåglaviks Glasbruk, it seems to me that it has totally been forgotten in the glaslitterature.

Fåglavik is one of those many glassworks who did not survive long enough to make a lasting impression. Google it - you'll see what I mean.

Very interesting site Ingela, thanks. I've seen some glass on GMB that resembles some listed here and it seems like they were going for 104 years... :o
