Questions Regarding HOVMANTORP Sweden and Arabia Silja Pattern

<< < (2/3) > >>

Timosarp1926:
Again, thanks to you both for the additional information.  I did check the Laatutavura site for any Silja pieces before posting but found nothing.  David's comment that distribution was limited to N.A. may explain why.

Ivo:
However, Sea in the town of Kosta, did not go under.

langhaugh:
Ivo is correct, of course, about Sea being in Kosta, not Orrefors. My mistake. 

Ivo, I noticed that your link says that Sea is part of the Sagaform group, and yet the Orrefors web site still says that Sea is a subsidiary of Orrrefors Kosta Boda, as you have it in your book. Do you know if  Sagaform is a recent development?

Ivo:
I think the only person to know about current owners and activities is Bill Geary. I've lost track some time ago.

mbmb:
Back to Silja: designed by Heikki Orvola 1975, and in production until 1978. Glass by Nuutajärvi/Notsjö was marketed under the brand name Arabia 1971-78, so some confusion is bound to occur here. Nuutajärvi/Notsjö merged with Iittala in 1988. The Silja design has nothing to do with the Silja ferry line; Silja is a Scandinavian girl’s name.
