This is my first post here - somehow in all of years of 'googling,' I never stumbled across this forum before - what a fantastic place! Glass knowledge is my weakest area - I am looking forward to reading many of the past posts and learning. Time to try out my new night light.
I am wondering if folks more experienced with Orrefors could offer any information about this bowl? I believe the signature says Orrefors Lars Hellsen. After reading different online sites, I thought that Orrefors pieces were numbered. I then thought perhaps due to the size of this bowl, it could be a 'Gallery' piece, but I believe those are typically signed Gallery. I have searched extensively and have not found this bowl associated back to Lars.
The bowl measures 9 1/2" wide and weighs 7.12 pounds and has a cubist design, like a somewhat larger version of Fostoria American.
I did ask on other forum that I do frequent and two members both thought the bowl was indeed signed Orrefors Lars Hallsten and suggested I contact Orrefors for more info.
If someone would happen to have anymore information that would be greatly appreciated.
