I don't think green was a Cascade colour. Amber and mid-blue were.
But not expensive as you say - and still decorative.  :)

I've seen the lime green attributed to Empoli on some auction sites, (even to Holmegaard, but I know that is not correct)



Anyway, with 32 cm they look nice between our other green glassware.

Aseda Bo Borgstrom roll top.  Google will show you a vase with a label in your colour way.  The 20th century glass site has a bowl in grey, but without a pedestal.  There are a number of Aseda pieces on google with the pedestal like yours.

I rest my case!

I thought of Bo Borgstrom before because of the folded rim, I just wasn't sure.

I think you are quite right though it is a pity (or not) that nothing quite similar is on the Internet

It will be out there somewhere......you just have to keep an eye out.  I like it when it's hard to find.......not mad about impossible though!

Tim, was it the "cake stand"?  that's the only post I could find for you in December 2017.  If that's the right one, I can see it was probably the pedestal on the OP's piece that rang a bell with you.  However, the rim is not folded over on your piece so I think you are probably still looking on that one.  I will keep it in mind as well.

Sue was kind enough to help me with posting links to other threads, and I am pleased to be able to share it.  Find your old thread and open it, go to the window at the top of your browser, click on the address, copy it, go to the place you want to post it and paste it in.  Turned out it was the same as including a link to ebay, but for some reason I was expecting it to be different somehow!

I was hoping to get a reply from 10thcentury glas by now. No reply yet.

We also bought a similar bowl and we will receive it on sunday (I hope). Let's see if we can find a clue to solve this (or confirm it is Aseda). We bought some more interesting pieces. I might have to post some more in the next weeks.

I am as sure as I can be that we have actually identified this one.  If 20thcenturyglass are also GMB members, they may know you already have an answer.  Here is one in the other colour way that is identical to yours in form

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bo-Borgstrom-for-Aseda-Sweden-Art-Glass-Vase-Bowl-/282557017285

And also one identical to yours

You're absolutely right!  These last pictures are quite clear.

It is not really strange. I quite like Aseda.

And by the way, thank you! I have been looking on the Internet for weeks to find it.
