Scandi query Spirulex Bowl
« on: August 30, 2006, 03:07:44 PM »
In amongst the bulk lot of Scandi glass I bought at auction yesterday was this rather lovely bowl that I can't find in any of my books and hoping someone out there can help ID. It is a lovely opaque white with very feint turquoise decoration within the glass almost like graal. It is signed as shown which looks like Bjorn ------- then VH58 and Spirulex.

I'm hoping Bill Geary will pick up on it, he's the most likely to throw some light on my darkness.

That's what I thought too, Tony.  :lol:

I have found one auction with his name in it;

No. 60. It is a dish pâte-de-verre 1993.
Just found this too:

Della you're absolutely the Master googler.

Quote
"60   BJÖRN STERN, skål, egen verkstad 1993, pâte-de-verre, dekor    2500   
means he ran his own workshop (Verkstad) in 1993; but I think it also means that he managed to stay out of the limelight, and 2500 Skr (182 pounds) is not an impressive price for a handmade skål in Konstglas.
