Swedish? Orrefors or? old glass vase??
« on: February 07, 2015, 07:42:15 PM »
This lovely vase was beutifull and I bought it. I though that this is finnish of course, because I am in Finland, but glassfriends told me that this is maybe our neighbours(Sweden) glass. Orrefors maybe.
So here is a picture and it is signed, with a very thin line (poor picture of sign.) "Fd W Johanson or Lohanson 58-250", but not sure about those first letters.. BUT it is not a Johansson, with two S. Just one. So, I found a post http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,50566.20.html . Were the Johansson so crappy, that he signed the glass only with one S. And maybe it is FA, not Fd what I thought.
And maybe there is still something wrong, because my vase I could say looks much oldier, than those Johansson's(with two S) vases.
Could you tell me more about this lovely piece?     Thanks, Elina :)

Hello Elina, is there a possibility that it could be johanfors glass from Sweden ?
Best of luck with your quest.

Does this compare at all with the signature ?
