Strombergshyttan Bowl, trying to determine date
« on: May 23, 2018, 05:35:41 PM »
Greetings! I have a very heavy bowl I believe is signed Stromberg T64. I've been researching the mark, but I'm not clear on how to determine the date of production. I believe T is the shape of the vessel, but what year is 64? Can someone help? Thanks!

Kerrie

The bowl measures 24cm in diameter and 9.5cm in height.

Hello,
(T = skål, 64 = modellnumret).
T = bowl, 64 = model number

From Swedish forum:
"Normally low numbers mean that Gerda Strömberg is the maker/designer"
"Sometimes a bowl could be in production for a long time after"

I found on one Swedish auction site, two other bowls/numbers signed  "T 52 S-hyttan 1935" and "T100 S-hyttan 1936"


Regards
Jonas

It is not a date code at all, then, but a model number. Thank you, Jonas. It seems it could have first been made in the 1930's, based on those others you found. But if the same model was made for 20 or 30 years, it would possibly have the same mark if it was made in 1960's?

Hello Kerrie,

That I don't know.
Maybe someone other can answer that.

I will look some more in Swedish.

Hello Kerrie,

Now I am at home again and have looked in my books.
Your bowl is in the book Schwedishe Glasmanufakturen 1915-1960 on page 429.
Your bowl can be a very early work 1935-36, the highest number thoose year were T 73.
I put in some pictures for you.

Regards
Jonas
