unusual Swedish Aseda Glasbruk
« on: November 16, 2012, 07:38:45 PM »
Hi again everyone,

I have a large Swedish Aseda Glasbruk bone / Jack in the pulpit Vase, I think, whats different with it is that the bubbles in the glass are square instead of the usual round.

Can you confirm that it is from who I think and any information about the square bubbles would be great

Yep, it's still Aseda. Not terribly unusual for the bubbles to be square. I've assumed it happens because the tips of the spikes in the mould or lying (on the marver) are round, but further down they're square. Thus, the holes become square when the glass gather is blown too far onto the spike.
