There is info on the many (often small) Swedish glassworks to be found, but a working knowledge of Scandinavian languages is usually required, I’m afraid. As for Hovmantorps Glasbruk (or glassworks), it was for many years one of four small glassworks in the town of Hovmantorp, Sweden. Established 1905 as Hovmantorps Nya Glasbruk (nya = new), it was built on the remains of an earlier glassworks which operated from 1860 until it burned down in 1878. Hovmantorp production reached its peak in the 1920s and 1930s. Known particularly for its own technique of spray painting on glass, developed by Frantz Müller. Other designers include Carl J. Alexandersson, Hans Owe Sandeberg, Barbro Reyde-Sandeberg, Signe Persson-Melin, Elsa Söderberg and Rune Strand. The company did not merge with others, but went bankrupt and disappeared altogether in 1977.
