No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Bengt Orup for Johansfors (Swedish)
« on: December 19, 2014, 10:29:04 PM »
We had this on the Board back in July 2005  -,2007.msg13761.html#msg13761  -  but the tinypics have gone so useful to add some new ones.

Unmarked, although believe many pieces from this designer are signed, and attribution for this one taken from Vigier & Pina (Smoke & Ice - page 110) and Jackson (20th Century Factory Glass - page 107).

This vase is 6.5" (maximum) with the other Board piece at 8.5" and the book examples appearing to both be 10.5".           The horizontal optic ribbing gives great effect of fish and net looking as though they're in water, and the mitres of the fish giving a sort of 3D effect.
