Ekenas glass, confused by the sign
« on: December 01, 2013, 11:43:38 AM »
Hello to all :)
I recently bought this Ekenas glass, signed to base. But It confuses me, because there is a written word "Gyllen". I have not seen this kind of sign before. Whether it is a fake Ekenas?

Nothing wrong with that, it looks good to me but cannot help with the gyllen part of your question.

It's a lovely bit of John Orwar Lake, no doubt at all, but I can't help with your query either. :)

We still have no idea why it appears to be called "Golden".
But I don't think there's anything wrong about it, just a small mystery.
