Orrefors glasateljé
« on: January 11, 2013, 10:16:39 AM »
I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Orrefors glasateljé? I've seen a couple of wonderful vases with this signature on & the initials HW which is for Hermann Wintersteller but the only other info I have managed to find is that he set the company up in 1989 as sole proprietor & an ad was placed in 2010 for the sale of the entire glass stock.

Any info would be interesting  :)

As far as I can find out Hermann Wintersteller was active at Vrigstad Kristall Glashytta which opened in 1982 and closed in 1987.
 He lives in the village of Orrefors and is approx. 76 years old.
 In November 2012 there was an auction of many of his pieces ( signed Orrefors Glasateljé HW ) on I wish I had bought some of them, they were stunning but I was busy and forgot about the auctions  >:( >:(
