Royal Krona Sweden. Glass makers or cutlery makers?
« on: November 18, 2005, 04:04:33 PM »
Hi

I've got this cheese plate and stand with a knife which has on the blade "Royal Krona Sewden" and I wondered who would have made the glass bits, Royal Krona or another Swedish glass company?

I've looked on the Relacement site but can't find Royal Krona in glass or flatware, so is it an Ikea thing or (shudder) TKMaxx?

Royal Krona is the unhappy marriage of Swedish glass makers Maleras, Skruf, Gullaskruf and Björkshult which failed in 1977.

Hi Ivo,

So my cheese dish is pre 1977 then?

 This must have been one of the better  pieces than,as it has a very modern feel, or maybe it was before its time  :lol:

Skruf is the glasswork. The cheese dish can be much earlier than 1974. Gullaskruf has Irish Coffe glass designed in 1968 that one can find with the Royal Krona label.
Collector of Gullaskruf.

The Royal Krona group was formed with the goal of saving the involved glass works from bankruptcy. The Swedish government dumped about
12,000,000 SK into the adventure.
Unfortunately, there was serious management disputes between the partners and all was lost in 1977.
