Vase with label 'Made in Sweden'
« on: September 22, 2011, 03:21:09 PM »
Blue moulded vase with oblong texture surface - label to bottom 'Made in Sweden' 6" high

Any idea on factory - date seems to be 60s 70s.

Thanks Adam

 :help: I've only seen the pale blue ones!
I suppose it could be my locality which influences what I see.  :usd:
