Ooohhhhh that's a BIG pic Chris! ;D  Can we resize it and add a copy to the board for you, as Tinypics tend to disappear after a while and then we don't know what we're talking about.   :-[

I would think of Germany (Zwiesel, WMF) or Empoli before I considered anything from Scandinavia. But that is just a hunch.

Thanks both, I had Nils Landberg? (Orrefors) in my head Daniel, what do you think.

i browsed through several catalogues but I couldnt find it. Both landberg and öhrström did similar.
Will check more and see if I find anything so I can say for sure. Landberg is a good bet though

I looked quickly through the Orrefors  Sandvik catalogue, and found a couple vaguely similar but nothing very close. Were the Sandvik piece marked?

The foot looks completely wrong for Landberg in my opinion, difficult one as it's a pretty generic Fifties shape.

Hello:

In my opinion, the work was done at Gullaskruf Glasbruk.

My initial thought was Hugo Gehlin, Gullaskruf, as also written above, but I searched several catalogues without finding it. Do you have it on file?

Hi.

In the book "Gullaskrufs Glasbruk 1927 -1952" there are two forms which are similar. One by Arthur Percy -1952 and one by Hugo Gehlin-1951.

Combined with my tours through the glass museum in Växjo and research on Swedish glass has lead me to my
view point.
