Moss green nordic bottle - ID - Skruf
« on: March 01, 2006, 02:57:32 PM »
I have the feeling I should recognise this bottle but i've been through the books and missed it..... is it Holmegaard?

TIA

I've never seen any verified pieces in this decorative style of pressed glass or anything in this sage-ish green colour (only in a bright bottle-green and in a bluey-green - but then I'm constantly coming across lots of Holmegaard that is new to me!), but the stopper is very much in the style of Holmegaard's 1970's decanters.

The stopper was used in Sweden (Reijmyre, Lindshammar and others) too, so maybe it is by Hellsten?

My first instinct - and I'm probably way off the mark - was Finland. I seem to recall seeing some pieces attributed to E.T. Siiroinen a while ago with a few stylistic similarities.

And I've got an Iittala decanter (initialled TW) which has the same stopper.

Hi

I think the item is Scandinavian.

There was a post about these stoppers

Apparently way back they bored a holed through a cheap coin - a cork and ring hoop were then required. The wire would go through the cork and up through the laid flat coin where it would hook around the ring hoop as a pull - this was used in most Scandinavian countries in 'Ye Olden Days'.

Eventually factories started making manufactured versions of these stoppers - like on Ivo's decanter/bottle. So it has to be Scandi?

It is a beautiful item and great to have the stopper - I have Lars Hellsten for Skrufs and Orrefors and they are clear glass - all the stuff I have seen by him is mainly clear glass/crystal.

I think could still be Skrufs - different designer, say 'Bengt Edenfalk' or ....

Ruda - mmmmm - the moulding seems too shallow and the design (Union Jacks!) to controlled - Actually I take that back if Ruda could be Gote Augustsson - especially the bottle shapes he loved

There are quite a few smaller concerns as well such as Alsterbro, I have seen some textured work by them

All this just IMHO

Hi Raoul

Good to know it is Skruf - any idea of designer, and was the pattern used on other items?

As a side light to this question, there was a family in Stockholm who had the rights to import cork to Sweden. This family also owned the small glass works at Skansen the major park in Stockholm.
You will see this cork on large numbers of Swedish glass.
