There was a thread about the matching decanters and vases on here a while back that attributed the design to Borne Augustsson, using old Aseda paperwork.

redlamp:
Thanks so much for your replies Christine, Ivo & Nic.

I will be thrilled to see the article on  'Aseda lamp foot designed by Bo Borgstrom',  it is always exciting when you finally learn of its origins or creator.  Does anyone know if the thread Nic refers to is still accessible ? I will do some searching on Aseda, that will possibly lead me to the thread.

Ivo, your 'Blue Henry' book launch page was a little trip down memory lane for me, albeit not one some would normally rejoice in taking.  My grandfather returned from New Guinea at the end of WWII with tuberculosis & spent the remainder of his life fairly much bedridden. For him the legacy of helping keep Australia free. The price many paid.

Re photos from my own computer, I delete them faster than photobucket as I am always attempting to increase storage space on here, so photobucket's will last longer than mine. I transfer them to a memory stick if I really want to keep them.

Oh, back to the lamp, I am off to find Aseda on google, perhaps I will find the mention of CHRISTINA, which also happens to be my name, how ironic. 

redlamp:
No, sadly, searching Aseda & Bo Borgstrom unearthed zero threads.

Google may unearth more.

Have a lovely weekend all.

This is the thread I mentioned: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,35816.0.html

No, they get uploaded from your computer, and are then stored on this site's servers - essentially just another big hard drive - much in the same way that you upload photos from your computer to Photobucket and they're stored on Photobucket's servers.

Swedishmom:
Hello there. Will try to clarify this. The lamp is NOT designed by Bo Borgström. This model was way before he was hired as the chiefdesigner at Åseda. I would say the 50:es. I guess that the production identification would be C-37 with a height of 200 mm. It came in following colours, brown, green, blue and red. An alternative would be nr 999 in the same colours added with clearglass. This model came also as vases and was often labelled/marked with F WA Johansson, Orrefors. But that was a retailercompany and not a glassmaker. Best wishes and congratulation to a lovely piece of glass.
