Orrefors Codes. ID Help
« on: November 18, 2011, 04:02:53 PM »
I found two small, facet cut bud vases with the same code marks on the bottom.  Can anyone help translate these letters and numbers?  Thank you!

Hi:


This coding doesn't make sense according to any of the accounts of the Orrefors numbering system I've seen, principally Ulrika Ruding in Wickman, Orrefors. Could you post a picture of the whole piece to see if we can get anywhere looking at that.

Here they are.  They aren't fancy and have no decoration with 4 cut sides.  They measure 4.25" inches tall.
