Turquoise cookie jar - Scandinavian?
« on: February 26, 2007, 11:38:42 AM »
This cookie jar looks terribly familiar - anyone know who made it?

Turquoise, very thin glass, 8.5 ins 210 mm tall, including bubble lid.

Thanks!

I think Tony (Tigerchips) may have had one on here - can't remember if a maker was ever found.

The shape looks very Alsterfors, but I don't know if they produced utilityware.

No luck so far.

Perhaps you saw it on this site too.

I'm starting to get desperate for a maker, I'll throw another one at you, I thought it might be by Corning?
