Etched Scandinavian Vase, Help ID Maker Please.....
« on: January 17, 2012, 06:48:11 PM »
Hello, I have this obviously Scandinavian etched vase, very high quality etching and polishing, and it is signed, but I do not recognize the maker:

Can find no name similar in an extensive list off Wikipedia.  No real surprise.  Apparently engraver's were able to but blanks off various larger companies and use their own studio name.  I can make out (I believe) SLASG*ARY / GLASG*ARY as a studio name but the * letter is too badly scratched.  The AK is probably the engraver and I notice an AK = Ake Karlsson engraved at Orrefors from 1924 - 1945.  Perhaps it was his own personal shop at a later date?

This site looks like it might be some help as well  http://www.glassfromsweden.com/history-of-swedish-glass.html .

Very nice piece would happily have it my collection if I had found it.

The search should not be limited to just Sweden - engraved glass in the swedish style has been made, sometimes with bewildering signatures, in Norway, Belgium and in Hungary.

Aha independent engraving studio using blanks from Kosta, Orrefors or Skruf.  That will not be easy ID.
