No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Just googled Flygsfors, I think the smaller one is that, they look almost the same, and the signature on the base looks the same too!

Hi cherryt,  try rubbing talcum powder into the signature before taking the photo, it often helps it to show better, and  will wash off easily without harming the glass...have a go.

The smaller one does have Flygsfors and Coquille 61 on the base, so thats that one solved!  Thanks for your help everyone!

Hi.

When Paul Kedelv left Flygsfors, he went to Reimyre Glassworks.

He designed a similar form at Reimyre without the white line around the color which was in the
Flygsfor's design.

Another option.
