Willy Johansson bowl need help with number...
« on: June 20, 2014, 11:17:30 PM »
Greetings, I have a lovely acid etched long sided panel cut bowl or wide vase could be either. I have established that it was made in 1956 by W. Johansson but it has another number on it - 620. Can any one out there in glass land shed some light on this?? Pictures for your perusal as usual.
Many thanks Carol

Your photos are too small for us to see any detail.

Hi - hopefully we have someone here we can help - but if not then you might try the V. & A. Museum in London, as I know they do have some of his glass, plus they will probably have the book on Hadeland glass.

Their email address is............   ceramicsandglassatvam.ac.uk  ...   replacing the 'at' with the rat's tail.

The Corning also have some his glass, so would imagine they should be able to help.

But fingers crossed you'll get the answer here first. :)
