Hadeland Gro Bergslein Value: Green Apple
« on: June 12, 2016, 08:49:12 PM »
My elderly neighbor from Norway has asked me to sell this for her.
I have no idea what the value may be.  Using a magnifying glass I seem to read "Hadeland Gro" on the bottom.
Some research seems to state that the full name of artist is Gro Bergslein.
Can anyone shed any additional data on this piece?
Thank you very much. ;)

Hi and welcome.  :)
Unfortunately, we do not really tend to discuss values here because they are very subjective in the secondary market.
We're really about the much more exciting business of identifying and discussing the glass.

However, there is a lot of interest in the Hadeland glassworks in Norway itself, and Gro Bergslein's work is  desirable.
If you were to put it up on that well-known auction site and ensured the auction was advertised in Norway, I'm sure it would happily make its own price.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sue, I 100% understand.
I'm helping this widow liquidate so many unusual things that I know nothing about including this big green glass apple.
I will find some information about it elsewhere.
Thank you.

If it's just more information you need, I've done a search for Gro Bergslien (link)

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?action=search2

which brings up all the threads we've had discussing her here before.

I think you really need Alexander to pop in and tell you a little bit more, if you don't find what you're looking for there.
I do like her work, I have a bottle vase, which you will find illustrated in those.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thank you.  The link provided brings up a search box on my system which I entered "Hadeland" which resulted in 170 entries.
Thank you again!

There's a search box at the top right hand side of every page here, but you need to start from "Glass Message Board" to search the whole site, otherwise it will just search the small area or forum you are currently in.

The search I did was for Gro Bergslien, which brought up about 7 links, but they didn't appear in the link I provided - sorry about that.
(I'm not too good at computery stuff, computers do things I don't ask them to behind my back, and refuse to do the things I do ask them to do.)

A general internet search only really brings up items for sale, but there are several apples illustrated.

There's a little info on Hadeland on the "greatglass" website. (a very useful site!)

Sue,
Thank you so much!
I very much appreciate it.  I've read through many of the links & found some useful data.
I also put the piece up for sale on eBay so might find a new home for it there.
Very best to you & yours, Erik. ;)

I'm pleased to learn you managed to find what you were looking for. I wasn't really sure what it was, exactly, that you needed. Good luck with the auction for your friend.  :)

If there is any more glass you need help with, please, do not hesitate to ask. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)
