Huge stonking lumps of Scandinavian glass

(1/2) > >>

David E:
Hi all,

Got a few pieces of clear glass (not my expertise) that I would value someone's opinions on. They are all large, heavy lumps and one is clearly Orrefors (it says so on the tin), but has a large heraldic coat-of-arms acid-etched or engraved on the base. 3.2kg (7 lbs) in weight!

The other two are a little more ambiguous: the first is a tall ovoid vase with a fish engraved on the side. I have seen other glass attributed to Scandinavian makers like this. A mere 2.1kg...

The last is an engraved fruit bowl. Not sure whether this is Scandinavian; could it be Royal Bohemian? Certainly has a 1960/70s look to it and weighs 3.2kg.

More photos can be seen at along with dimensions and weights. The entire page is 84KB, including thumbnails (see, we do listen Bernard!  :lol: )

Much appreciated, in advance.



I've looked at your bowl and it looks very like a modern Stuart pattern that is currently on sale.

Hope this helps.

Hi Samantha,

Many thanks for that - just goes to show that looks can be deceptive!


The heraldic device and motto, is that of the Republic of Fiji. (Fear God and honour the Queen)

Delighted that your huge stonking lumps of Scandinavian glass were not accompanied by huge stonking in-line images.   However, I already have you down in my list of those who have seen the light, so, sorry, no popping of champagne corks here.   What I do want to know is how you optimised images that size down to an average of around 4.6Kb?   I don't think the software I use is that good - or is it just that you are better at IrfanView than yours truly.
