Pukeberg 'solifleur' vases
« Reply #10 on: May 21, 2006, 12:17:37 PM »

When we pronounce the Swedish glass works Pukeberg in English, the
first word Puke means the same in American English as when one gets sick and berg sounds right.

In a discussion with the owner of Pukeberg, I recommended they change the name if they intended to sell their glass in the American
market. He said he understood about the pronunciation.

The pronunciation in Swedish is difficult and does not have the same sound or meaning as the English. It is a very difficult sound to display in

Delving as you do, it would appear that there is an identified designer for the Walther solifleurs.
On Jan Kilian's site http://www.glaskilian.de is a Walther vase, attributed to Heiner Düsterhaus.
Checking for the artist/designer revealed the following site that may be of interest.

My pressglas-pavillon enjoyed the visit of Mr. Volker Walther, Mr. Düsterhaus and Mr. Ferlings on 11th September, 2006. Shall be writing on this shortly - also to PK.
Volker Walther is the grand son of Horst Walther (formerly Walther Schwepnitz who established Siebenstern in 1951).

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)
