I have an extensive collection as to what looks like production Glassware (and also hand made glassware)  from Hadeland. I inherited this collection from my mother when she passed 2 years ago (I am Lars Fletre's grandson).

I will be posting pictures later tonight of this collection if I receive any posts / messages..... (I am trying to appraise the collection for Insurance purposes and also, to gain more knowledge of my grandfather's contribution to Hadeland design and in their catalogue). This forom came up in my google search for more information on his time at Hadeland, and based on a post by the member "Alexander" that popped up in that search, it would appear I have come to the right place.

Best regards.

Amarine welcome to the board  :)
And thank you for your post here and also on the other thread.  I can't help with your quest but I am sure Alexander still posts and hopefully will see your addition to the other thread automatically and be able to help you more.

We would love to see some of your collection (or indeed all of it :) ) if you are willing to share.
Have you also tried the 'search' button top left of this screen next to Rules?  If you put Hadeland in there may be information in other threads that comes up.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures

Thanks. When I get home tonight, I'll post the pics (there are quite a few of them). I haven't taken pictures of individual pieces yet, but I can if the need arises.

As for searching for Hadeland, I'll be doing that tonight (most likely tho, there won't be any that mention my grandfather as those would have shown up in the google 'results" pages as well).

Given I have no clue what price to give the Insurance company (to ensure I have all bases covered)... and I suspect I probably estimated on the low side... it will be interesting to see the response to these posts.

And given I am helping my Aunt document the extensive history of my Grandfather (he was a Wood Carver / Artist / Poet as well), anything I can glean will be helpful... and appreciated.

Hello Amarine,  welcome to the GMB...I would love to see your collection as well...I have several Hadeland glass animals and birds in my collection, seeing yours will help me know which pieces I am missing!!

You need to use the attach facility on the board, as outside picture hosting does not work (links are OK but not desirable). Resize your pictures (high res) so that the longest side is about 700 pixels and you should be OK. You can attach four pictures per post. If you need more reply to yourself.

(You are unlikely to get valuations, as we are not professionals and comebacks could be nasty, though you might get an idea of scarcity. Valuations are just too subjective)

Just seen that you've worked it out

The file attachment tool is pretty limited (so I was trying the external forum img structure), didn't work... so I had to reduce the size of the pic files. I am not expecting miracles, just looking at a start off point and going from there.

No worries.....

If you resize so the longest size is 700 pixels your pictures should blow up once clicked on.  If you see under your pics where it says 200x300?  mine say for example  400x600 and mine increase to a much larger size on the screen once clicked on which makes them visible.
