Well today I got a Brockwitz fish handled bowl for £2. What I am fairly certain is an Aseda Glasbruk vase and a very strange and funky  flat backed hippopotamus which if anyone can identify I'd be really grateful. It is big measuring 8.5" long and very heavy.

Well I thought all the Kosta was signed which is why I asked. It was only 50p but I'm keeping it 'cos I like funky things.

Also I haven't finished yet! I have candlestick from Broste, Copenhagen, I know they are a store but i suspect the glass is scandinavian and a mystery piece I forgot about. Pic to follow. I also bought a ton of other stuff, china old bakelite etc. Car Boot was full of people clearing relatives houses!

Hiya Pat, I'd say your hippo was Kosta Boda too - from their Zoo series - have a look at the hippo in my shop for comparison (in the Swedish glass section - there is also a giraffe and a rhino in the glass SOLD section).  These definitely weren't signed - none of the pieces I've had or sold have ever had a signature.  Pip

Ooh, Pip - on a different (but similar) point... how much did you sell your Egersund sugar bowl for on your site? I've a small platter/dish in the same pattern and I'm stumped as to how best price it.  :D

Hiya Nic - I sold it for £15.00 to someone in Norway - I love it when things go back home :-)

Thanks. I was thinking somewhere around that for mine... (£10-15) ...but just thought I'd check that it wasn't something super-valuable first. :D
