Today I published a catalogue for Svenska Kristallglasbruken (aka Kristallbolaget) of 1904.

Svenska Kristallglasbruken was formed as a sales organization for Kosta, Reijmyre, Eda, Alsterfors and Flöxhult, but (as I understand it) they soon got megalomania and started buying glassworks (and starting new ones) as if "everything was right with the world". Of course that did not last for ever, so by (around) 1930 they went bust.

(Probably, the https://Bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se has them to thank for a couple of interesting machines... but that is another story)

The catalogue from 1904 is the only one that I know of, and it cost me(us) a small fortune to get it digitized from Royal Library, so I hope you enjoy it!

It is (as usual) found at https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar.html - after Kosta, before Kungelf (because Kristallglasbruken, or Kristallbolaget is (are?) the important words here... even if I do give them their full name)

Some more catalogues uploaded today.

I found some more catalogues and price lists from Kristallglasbruken some time ago (and this time I didn't have to pay for them) - the 1904 price list is huge, so it comes in 3 parts.
The there is a catalogue for "household and pressed glass" also from 1904, plus a price list.

Then there is a cat + price list for export, 1922.
(Pray, what is an "iceplate"? - I can't even guess...)

Lastly, a "Model book" from the (now defunct) public hotel and restaurant chain SARA.

As usual:  https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar.html

New catalogues from SEA and Strömbergshyttan.

Reorganisation: Kosta and Kosta Boda have got their own page (link from https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar.html - and there is a link back, too) There are some new Kosta Boda publications as well.
I have several more price lists (w/o photos) not published, but can do that on request.
Asking for help: two of the new publications do not have a printing year: should any of you experts be able to help with year (or interval), please tell!

I have moved the files on the server, so if links seem dead: first reload the page. If that doesn't help, please contact me! (that goes for links from other pages, too - I *hope* I have fixed them all)

Today I have posted  14 (+2+1) catalogues and pricelists from Lindshammar. (Thank you, Benny!)

As we talked about in another thread, the sometimes occurring "s" at the end is a possessive - Lindshammar is the village, Lindshammars glasbruk is the glassworks of Lindshammar; Strömbergshyttan is the village, Strömbergshyttans glasbruk is the glassworks of Strömbergshyttan.

Not all names are constructed the same - thus Bergdala, Boda, Eda, (Elme was a glasworks situated in Älmhult), Kosta, Orrefors (possibly because it already ends with an s), Reimyre, SEA (not a place), Transjö, Åfors (possibly because it ends in s) are all glassworks that do not take as s.

As you all know, all our material has a CC BY SA license, so you are all welcome to it.

Catalogues to be found at https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar.html , as always.

Thank you Kerstin for finding these catalogues and taking the time to upload them to this site.
I have been trying to buy the book, Glas fran Eda for some time now.
The Eda catalogues you uploaded were great to see.

https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar.html : Again some "new" old catalogues - some Gullaskruf, Johansfors (maybe more), also I have found the technique reports from Kalmar museum *now also in English* (above the catalogues).

On the special Kosta page (https://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/nedladdningar-kosta.html) there are some 16-1700 newly scanned pages of KostaBoda catalogues. (Tip: in some of the newer (newer than 2002) most of the series also have the year in which they were launched)

Now a question for you: we have several pricelists from late 1990 - early 2000. In most of them it says "recommended retail  net prices, taxes and duties to be added". Is this something you, glass ppl on this forum, are at all interested in? (myself, technique nerd, would not know...) If I get no reactions, I will take it as "no particular interest" and let them remain in the box.

Speaking of techniques: we have found a promotional video from Orrefors-Kosta-Boda from 1997. We have added captions in English and posted it to our youtube channel - direct link to video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUs2rvqUwc0  (If we have got the terminology wrong, please drop me an e-mail to kerstin@bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se !)
