Orrefors fish graal question

(1/3) > >>

chuggy:
I've got a superb example of a fish graal vase, sold all the others over the years but always hung onto this one. Question is I was reading somewhere the other day that these were introduced in 1954, now my one is dated 1945 and hand signed as shown, so just when were these first produced.

According to Lesley Jackson (20th century factory glass) Hald created the first of his Fish Graal patterns in 1936. After the war Hald returned to his favoured medium - engraving. Can I see a picture, pretty please  :D

chuggy:
Always happy to oblige, it's just got the best mix of fish and details of any thant I've owned.

I WANT ONE!  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

I've just noticed that Ivo has the graal year numbering in his book, but I can't quite make out your number

chuggy:
Number is 2360, it might be available as part of the current clear out.
