Orrefors Pansy painted glass - date?
« on: October 20, 2006, 09:32:25 AM »
Dear All

Haven't posted for a while I know.  Not for lack of glass - although it looks like the contents of the parcel from Maine is probably sitting on a postperson's mantlepiece by now.  :evil:

Here is a little Orrefors glass painted in purple and yellow pansies with green swags.  There are painted initials on the body "EE.AL".  It's not something I would normally buy - a bit twee for me and probably terribly overpriced.  I don't think it's very old.  Could someone shed any light on it?

Thank you all

 :D

Your work was designed by Eva Englund at Orrefors and I think it was produced as a production piece in the 1980's.  If the label in green, it is a second. I could not tell

Thank you so much Bill.  The label is actually gray so I assume it's not a second.  :)

The gray label reflects the piece is half crystal under Orrefors system of using labels.
