Thank you, I really didn't think it was Sklo Union. I will keep researching!

No problem :)
5 knew how stupid I was being.  Honest, I had never turned them over so I never saw the etching from the proper perspective.  Thank you for the clarification because I would not have looked more closely if you hadn't said "generic" orrefors signature.  NOW it makes sense.  Thanks again, Greg!
I dont regonise the designer off hand. These just have the generic 'orrefors' signature.
Wow...thank you for the fast reply!  However, I'm not certain; are you familiar with the pattern or designer?  I have a couple of pieces of old Orrefors (and some Kosta Boda vases) and they're different.  These may be mid-century but I don't think the signature is Sven Palmquist's.  If you could clarify with some further details it would be much appreciated!

Thanks, again for the really quick response!

I don't know who made this or where but Sklo Union is never going to the right answer for this sort of hotworked glass as the Sklo Union factories produced mainly pressed glass with some cast and some machine blown.
Orrefors  :)

I'm new and need some experienced help.  I bought these candleholders a while ago and noticed they had engraved signatures on the bottom, (the signature I've supplied is the clearest of the two signatures).  I bought them because they have this wonderful look of water swirling down a crystal bowl and now I'd like to know who made them.  They are only about 3" in diameter but the really look terrific in the dark...with a candle of course.  Any help would be appreciated.
