White vase - Swedish? - ID = Sölvehyttan
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:24:42 PM »
Do you think this white vase is Swedish?

Mod: I have split this from another topic, created a suitable subject wording
and changed the text in the request to make sense on its own.
Jay - please always start a new topic for a new item,
otherwise things get very confused with mixed responses to the different items.

Apologies as this is the second post of this vase and for mixing :pb:

Looks like a design by Bo Borgstrom for Aseda, some had round bases others had square and they were made in a variety of colours and heights.

Btw, the brown vase with a Greek key design in your Dartington photo album was made by Whitefriars.

Have just noticed the bubbles in your vase,  :-[  this may point to another manufacturer but I would still look at Swedish glassmakers first.

It looks more Murano to me as it looks the bubbles were created by some reticello-like process. I have no idea of a possible maker, though.

A bit late but this is Swedish and made by Sea Glasbruk. Not that I can find a reference now...
