Della:
Ivo,
Looking at your book, the code could be production from 1938-1939, or is this piece not classed as production glass?
Or, is 1930 the actual production date of this piece? :?

vida_vision:

In Of it is always the year of design, not the year of production to which the number refers. Production years - if present - are usually encoded, not written in full.
   I have no idea if cut-to-clear carries production numbers or  the model numbers of engraved glass. I've not come across much 1930s Of glass and would not know if the sig is correct - it looks a bit large and scrawny. I'm sure Bill can confirm with more confidence.

Della:
Thanks ever so much for the explanation Ivo.  :D  :D

Bill G:
Ivo, thank you for your confidence.

This is definately, a work designed by Edward Hald.

Hald did a series of these overlays with lilac, etc. cutting designs into
the overlays.

In my opinion, this work was designed in 1930 and is part of a series
started in 1920 with different designs, ie. dragons, etc..

As respects the signature. the artist/designers did not actually sign the works. An employee of Orrefors kept a master log of all production
and at the same time signed the work to make sure things were kept in
order by numerical sequence and date. It is very interesting to go through these ledgers in the Orrefors archives.
