Orrefors Bowl - Pictures added
« on: March 05, 2006, 11:18:09 PM »
I bought an Orrefors bowl today.  It is marked Orrefors PU 3092/1

I know the PU stands for Sven Palmqvist and smooth, uncut glass from info I found on Great Glass

http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/swedish.htm

But they do not have the whole date coding which the site says is too complicated to explain there  :?  So can someone decipher the 3092/1 for me, please.

I will try to post a picture of the bowl tomorrow.

the design is from 1946/1948 but production may have been much later.
I could recommend a handy little book for the Orrefors codes.....

How many of us ask questions that we already have answered in a book? Partly because of this, and partly because I can never find the book I need, I started an inventory of my glass references. Over 300 so far and the next stage will be trying to organise them properly - currently in drawers, on shelves, piles on the floor and almost certainly some in the pile of parcels that have yet to be unwrapped ... chaos!

Pictures added.  Is this a geode bowl? Does the line/shape have a name?

Sorry but I am totally ignorant on Orrefors.  Just know enough to recognize the signature  and now with Ivo's book to decipher the date codes :lol:

Your piece appears in the 1954 catalog under the designation Selena

Your designation 3092/1 is one of a series for this design of 4 which was
produced in two colors.


The four forms had diameters of 95, 120,150 and 215mm

The P stands for Palmqvist and and the u stand for hand shaped.

Thank you, Bill.

I forgot to put the dimensions in my last post but it is 3 5/8 inches which be closest to the 95 mm size, so the smallest in the range.

Do you know the name of the color?  It is a very unusual shade of red.
