Orrefors perfume bottle, signed just Orrefors? When?
« on: June 17, 2006, 01:22:21 PM »
Hello all ~ I found this perfume bottle and recognized the signature right away, but it's the first time I've seen Orrefors signed without an artist's initials or a date code.  I looked through the Orrefors information, but I couldn't find information on this.  Is there a way to date it?  Here's pics:

Hope I did that right and thanks for any info or direction!

Your perfume is designed by Edvin Öhrström and appears in the 1945/46 catalog of Orrefors Crystal. There were two sizes of this form in two different colors of glass - clear and aqua marine.
