Does anyone recognise the signature? = Strömbergshyttan

Is this the same Artist signature?
(http://www.svazzo.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/stromh104.jpg)

I recently bought this ashtray, and wasnt sure if it was the same signature as Strombergshyttan? I saw that the # 32 - meant it was from 1947-54, and wanted to know what the # 104 means. Is this a more recent piece?   Thanks!

Hi Max!
Thanks, I also like it very much.
It measures 3 3/4" tall x 4 1/2" wide (along the flat cut face).

Yes that is another Strömbershyttan glass piece, signed in full. The code H is ashtray (B=vase, E=decanter, F=jamjar etc) and the number refers to the model.  All models were subsequently numbered and thus you can find out the design (though not production) year. Unfortunately I do not have the numbers for ashtrays, but for flower vases the highest number is 111 in 1936;   388 in 1944; 401 in 1947 etc.  So I would assume your ashtray with #32 was designed in the thirties.

Hi Ivo,
Thanks for the info!
The design # would not be the same as when it was made, but when the design was introduced right?

correct. Some products were better sellers than others, and I do not think there is a record of which product has been in production for how long. It does not matter and you should not want to know in such gruesome detail anyway...

The above book has H91 being designed in 1962, so clearly after then. Unfortunately no idea how much later though.

Note that each letter has it's own number sequence, so B111 (vase) was designed back in 1936.
