Crackle ball vase with "konstglas" label
« on: June 09, 2013, 10:56:52 AM »
This is a ball vase in light green crackle and with a clear eyelet supposedly for hanging.  It has a small snapped off pontil mark.

The silver and blue foil label is one I have not been able to find anywhere. It has a fleur-de-lis and says KONST   G...  - so it has to be Swedish, right?

Kastrup used the fleur de lis in the past, but that was not a sleek narrow one but a much more voluptuous labelfiller.

All in all, does anyone recognise this label?

It looks like a small vintage item from the glass works at Skansen, the open air museum in Stockholm:

All the similar items I have seen have a foil label that says "Konst Glass" (art glass) and "Skansen." They were made on sight and sold as souvenirs. I've been trying to find a good image somewhere online...

Bravo and thank you!

Here is the missing label for the label section, taken off a little scottie dog - photo of which I cannot now locate.... I just had not made the connection!

Stockholms Glasbruk was run by Tore Berglund from 1936 to 1980, it then went to Göran and Marianne Hammar and is now Karin Hammar; not sure how the family relates but I think they do.
