Hi,
I have acquired this Orrefors vase its 6 high and marked on the base (Orrefors  9058911 Edward Hald Graal - Gallery 17-83).
Can anyone help me identifying the year of manufacture? Details about the vase and How much its worth?
Any information that can help

Thanks in advance

Produced up in til late 80's of which this is an example which affects it's desirability and therefore value, a quick google search will point you in the right direction on that front.

Many thanks for the information, I've already done a search on the net, but couldn't find any similar pieces with similar numbering!!!
All pieces I found have different numbering/ marking on the base, I mean come with letters and numbers without the word Gallery!!
Does any of you have an explanation? Does that make this piece kind of lower end or a cheaper example of fish Graal vases

Thanks

The numbering on yours indicate later production as I said these were produced right up until the late 80's, it is the early examples that are the most desirable but because of the numbers produced Fish graal doesn't command the high prices seen in other graal vases.

I paid $378 + $40 shipping (due to vase weight as it weighs between 9-10 lb unpacked), would that be a reasonable price?or it's over priced?
Thanks

Gallery was a collection of art glass, all shown in a new catalogue each year.
This graal is signed 83 and that stands for 1983.  The cost 1983 was 990 SEK, which is around 105 euros.
The edition is not mentioned but imo these are equal to Expo pieces which were produced in 100-250 series.
