Elme At Ikea...

Thought this might be of interest to folk - from Ikea's 1959 catalogue:

Ikea Ranges by Elme Glasbruk

That's excellent Nic ;)

It's perhaps not a coincidence that IKEA opened their first showroom in Almhult, Sweden, where Elme was located, in either 1953 or '58.  I'm sure many of Elme's vases would have been on sale there.

Although any Elme glass they sold would probably have been designed specifically for Ikea. Unfortunately that's the only catalogue page I have - it's something I'd saved it from an auction page ages ago and just forgot about it.
