Large art glass glass door handles - Swedish probably
« on: June 06, 2018, 11:43:23 PM »
Hello everybody !
I am having hard time identifying these two handles.
At least I think they are handles but I am not sure.
I could not think of else when I found them here in Sweden.
They are probably Swedish.
I am sure I have seen similar  glass made by Kosta boda, WMF
all opinions welcome!
Thanks in advance!

Might this be similar in making and design?
Difficult to tell but just thought I'd mention it

Hello flying free!
Thanks much for the tip!
I was very helpful!
I googled it and somehow found very similar glass designed by Bengt Orup for Hyllinge Glasbruk.
The similarity is of the glass is 99% and pretty sure it is Bengt Orup for Hyllinge Glasbruk!
Thanks a lot for your time and effort!
best regards!

Lots of Swedish (and other) glassworks produced this type of glass with inclusions through the 1950s-70s. It'd be near-impossible to identify it by that alone.

In Sweden, Lindshammar produced a lot of architectural glass - including many door handles and drawer pulls (because of the fitting on yours, these are probably designed for drawers or a cupboard). I've not seen any with inclusions, but they did make a LOT of different handle designs.

Might be worth a look.

Hello Pinkspoons!
Thanks for the information!
I will do a little research on Lindshammar.
I think these are much larger to be fitted on a drawer/ cupboard- maybe but still too large.
Actually I forgot to say that one of the handle still has this protective plastic washer, which makes me believe they are handles for tempered glass door.

Doors (usually) need a handle on either side. Unless they're push/pull doors.

I've some fairly large Lindshammar cupboard/drawer pulls - about the same size as normal door knobs.

Don't forget to check the metal for markings - many of the Lindshammar ones I've owned have impressed maker's marks one the metal (sometimes Lindshammar, sometimes the company that made the metal - or sometimes nothing at all).
