Quiz Time ....... (calling all PW People)
« on: September 25, 2011, 12:03:45 AM »
 :hi: there:

I am going to have a Quiz on this item.  Funny thing is, I do NOT know who made it either -- but I have some info in front of me that you do not.  Now this info *might* be:

a)  A Box with it
b)  A piece of masking tape saying something on it
c)  A Signature
d)  or a label on it.

I have Great Belief that even with so me having so little knowledge of the info in front of me, we can still figure this out..... :X:

Multi color heavy weight, about 3.5 inches tall.  Giving you several pics of it.

Now before we try anything else, the first thing is I want the *COUNTRY*. 
So just start with that FIRST....before anything else....Okay?.


 :X: :X:  So hoping this works out, as I do not know myself, but I have Faith *we* can figure it out.......Some Quiz, eh??

I vote for Sweden as I think the colors and design are fairly typical of Swedish PW's.

 :hiclp: :hiclp:  WOW, one guess -- and You are CORRECT!!  WTG :thup:  Your Good !!   



So SWEDEN it is, and now you know it is Signed.

Now for the Next clue.......I believe this is a *Date* on the bottom, so now What Company do you think it is?  I hope this is a date, or I will be giving you wrong clues. 

(I think I may have figured this PW out now, so we will see....if I do not lose my little piece of paper here.....lol  :24:)

Ahhhh........................I will just post the bottom of the PW for the answer.


I *think* this Signature says: KONST GLASHYTTAN URSHUTT - 65 - SWEDEN....after taking a month to try to figure it out -- but I am not sure.  What I can see of the letters, it does seem to match that.  

So I think  :X:  that is the answer.              Hope you enjoyed the quiz.. :spls:



Good Night :wsh:

Try Googling  "Konst Glashyttan Urshult" - I suspect they might be it. ;)

It seems that Rosieposie has several pieces by the firm I mentioned - maybe she has a signed one for you to compare.

Hi there, and Thanks:

Thanks, yes that is what I tried.  Problem was that I could only find ones that had labels.  Even checked here on the Board and could not find any signed ones either.  So I was at a lose to find any with writing.  That is why I decided to make it a quiz, as I think it was --- but then on the other hand -- I could not find any signed pieces on the Net, Ebay, or here on the Board.

Seems like all pieces have label and that is it -- plus I did not find any PW like this either (signed, or even with a label). 

Maybe being an older piece ??? ( if 1965 ) makes a difference -- but I am finding Nothing in regards to any signed piece at all.....even here on the Board. 

?????

Hi, glad I got it right, I have a bit of an unfair advantage living right next door to Sweden tho ;)

Btw -  the correct spelling, for googling and such is Konstglashyttan - the words are not separated the same way they would be in English.

What is odd is that when I Google, I can't seem to find anything but auctions or items for sale in any language   :huh:

Sweden has and have had a lot of small glassmakers, a lot have gone out of business or been swallowed by the bigger houses,
I'm guessing this maker was a small time operation in it's day and stopped making glass a good while back or changed their name and location.

The only listing on Swedish Yello pages for art glass (konstglas) is for a glas shop who have no production on their own
