Hi, newbie here. Have searched everywhere for hours and hours but can't find an answer. Can anyone tell me if an Orrefors stemware label (1987/88) that has a clear background with green writing on it, means the item is a second? Also does it mean that if something is a second (stemware) it has very limited value even if it 'looks' perfect?

Hello,
Have not seen this one before.
Green usually mean Secunda in all Orrefors and maybe this is for export or a very new one?
But I donít understand why they should ship second sort glas around the globe?
Do you have a Picture of the full object, then we can see if it is an object that is normaly signed.
Regards
Jonas

Thank you! More photos attached that will hopefully help. A complete set (later separated up) was purchased from the factory in Sweden as a wedding present and shipped to Australia as a gift in 1987/1988. I stupidly removed all but one sticker label about 10 years ago. I think the stemware is from the 'Illusion' range, although the large 'goblet' sized glasses (in one of the photos) seem to be from a different collection (?).
