Identifying allegedly Swedish glass
« on: July 08, 2006, 04:02:40 AM »
I bought a cased orange (dark almost tomato) vase with white lining on ebay with a rather worn gold label saying MADE IN SWEDEN. It was strictly for decorative purposes - didn't pay much & don't expect to have uncovered a masterpiece. The mouth is more oval than round and there are a few bubbles in the casing.

There seems to be a mark pressed into the pontil which looks like any of the following:
- a capital H with two cross bars
- two capital Ts, one right way up and the other upside down.
- a capital T and a capital I.

Would appreciate any help - can't get a decent photo.
