Small glass sculptures - Scandanavian?
« on: September 27, 2012, 10:36:47 PM »
Certainly look like Orrefors or Kosta, but only 2 1/2" tall.  I can't make out the signature.  Anything look familiar?  Thanks for looking.

Odd, I thought they were by Mats Jonasson, but that's not the signature in the photo.

These are A. Capredoni, made for Dartington glass and very beautiful indeed. There is a thread here answered by his son I will find it for you and post it here.

Here you go!

Now I feel like a real dolt.  I'd had one before and you referred me to the same thread.  Please forgive my failing memory and thank you very much, Rosie.

Don't feel bad uphoosier... we all have memory glitches, and I was glad I knew the answer for you.  :)
