Huge stonking lumps of Scandinavian glass

Ivo:
your fish looks like a sturgeon. No clue if it is Polish, Portugese, Swedish or British, though.....

David E:
Hi all,

Marcus: Many thanks for this - I would never have guessed Fiji though and assumed it came from one of the Scandinavian Royal houses! Looking a the style of dress worn by the figures I guess it makes sense.

Any thoughts on the Orrefors signature though? From what I can work out, the year could be 1953 (Ravenna) but would the designer be Sven Palmqvist? I'm assuming that long 'scratch' is an elongated 'P'. Does anyone know a Web site that offers this information?

Ivo: Thanks for the fish ID: more interested in the glass ID though  :wink: Surprised you were stumped though.

Bernard: I've created a separate topic to answer this, otherwise this will become a stonking message!

Best regards,
David

Bill G:
The first item was signed by Edvin Öhrström for Orrefors.
The number is for the years after he left but I suspect they used the form with an internal logo for one of the lands or kommunes in Sweden as a gift for a special event.
