Scandinavian Glass / Re: Help with engraver on large, old Orrefors vase please

Here you go


I think that website is wrong. The vase is Edvin Öhrström design 2768

Best, (also) Gareth.
Glass / Unknown studio glass pedestal bowl - any ideas please?
« Last post by aurora on February 20, 2018, 12:55:59 PM »

I bought a group of three studio glass pieces last week. Having identified two of them, I'm left with this very large pedestal bowl in tinted blue with applied loop foot (10.5" tall, 13.5" diameter). It seems to be dated 96 on the base, and also has a monogram which to me looks Eastern European at a guess. Does anyone have any ideas as to the maker please?

Many thanks,

They won't be for sale until one of the big Ds crop up for me, death or perhaps destitution. Anyway, the group is incomplete, there must be variations still to find...

Stumbled over this Archimede Seguso bowl and nobody wanted it so I grabbed it. Weighs 1.23KG (2.12 lbs) and is 109 mm  x 60mm (7.5" wide and 2.5" high).

It actually looked better than the photo's.

Just got the money returned by PayPal. Thank Christ!

I was so shocked when I opened it and found it was the smaller version (didn't even know there was a smaller version).

So I am back to looking for a replacement or alternative. Will be far more circumspect next time.

For those with an interest in the money, it cost me $US 1,900 and I lost the cost (not cheap) to ship it back to the USA.

The synonymical use of the the term white for clear would only work in one direction, so a clear
item would sometimes possibly be called white, but never vice versa.
I think the word ´kristall´ would always implicate a stronger clearness than just ´klar´. There would
also be the word ´kristallklar´ (crystal clear) in german with the same meaning as in english; this
can also be used in a figurative way.

Hi the glass from the snowglobe was threaded and it was glass not plastic. It had a circular separate
Rubber piece and when put together it was absolutely watertight. The glass had lots of tiny air bubbles in it. My sister has it now. I bought it from EBay for for Xmas. Hope that helps any other question I’ll try to answer even though I don’t have it now👍🏻
