Gigantic 1950s Swedish Vase = Aseda Glasbruk
« on: August 19, 2006, 12:49:10 PM »
Could someone help me to identify the designer and manufacturer of this very large vase?  I'm assuming it dates from the 1950s.  Completely unsigned, except for the foil label.
Thanks,
Charles.

PS I have a couple with squared off bases , I have always assumed them to be Aseda too?

Hi Emmi,

I have one with a squared off base too, which was attributed to Aseda. They are also depicted in Fire & Sea.

This is for the both square footed and the one in question in this thread.
