Thanks Sue. I sent some images to Lafiore. Maybe they will respond. If they do, I will update this post.

I have the big game series- 8 wine glasses, 4 tumblers and one water pitcher.  I have no idea of a fair market price? Any suggestions.?

thank you for the reply

I forgot to ask is there an Italian name for this glass finishing process?

Entirely possible - I've a giant red Elme flask-type vase that's been 'lamped' professionally, with a colour-matched lacquered hardboard cap and a nice chunky teak base.

 ;) Hand-made stuff does vary. I feel Lafiore is the right way to be going too. :)

With the "J" on the label it might be Jablonec, but that needs to be researched.

Glass News / Monica Backström, 1939 – 2020

I've just heard of the very recent death of an iconic Scandinavian glass designer, Monica Backström, who worked at Boda Glasbruk, Sweden from 1965.

I see the similarity to their Scavo glass. My jug is maybe a bit more finished than some the Lafiore stuff I looked at...

It's frosting created either by acid etching or sand blasting

Scandinavian Glass / Re: Is this a thing? Otto Brauer Gulvvase lamp?

That's really interesting information Nic, thanks.

On a slightly related note, I was given an enormous red with a white lining Arthur Percy  Gullaskruf style flask (over 3 feet tall), and have recently discovered a cable hole in it, towards the base. It is properly cut - round with not much chipping around the edges.
Studying it makes me suspect it was professionally done, not a home bungle.

Do you know, or suspect if it might have been one of these companies you mention were also lamping other suitable items?  ;D
