Like Flygsfors Coquille - probably = Reijmyre
« on: October 05, 2006, 12:30:24 AM »
Hello again :)  This glass thingy is a lot like the Flygsfors Coquille items but I'm thinking that the very tall and thin shape probably isn't right for them.  It's 9in/23cm tall.  Any ideas/help appreciated. TIA

I seem to recall reading that the Coquille pieces have white somewhere on the underside?  

I have a Coquille-shaped one which doesn't have any white (not as tall as yours though) and Ivo suggested Bayel may be a possibility for maker. I haven't been able to pin mine down to them though as yet... may be a lead worth checking out though, Pip?

Many thanks Anne - I'll research Bayel and report back if I find anything conclusive.

Hi Pip
Paul Kedelv who designed the Coquille range also dis similar work for Reijmyre which tends to be unsigned, so that may be another avenue worth exploring as I've had a couple of bits of that very similar to this piece.

a white thread around the rim is a telltale sign of Coquille - as is a proper signature. If it lacks both these features you're probably looking at a piece of Bayel or Reijmyre, whereby Reijmyre is more elaborate and better finished than Bayel.

Erickson Glass made similar looking shaped and style items. Morgantown may also have. But it looks more like Erickson if I were to guess.

OK an update on this - I've done lots of research on all of the names mentioned and I've found several virtual identical matches to mine which are all attributed to Paul Kedelv for Reijmyre (and they're all unsigned as well) - so I think that's what it might be - which is pleasing :-)
