Well, this is the ultimate edition I do on this post.

Last week i saw a simmilar vase on auction and it had an Aseda laber on it. It could be model 106 or 107-B and according to the label, it is an design from the early 1950s, made before Bo Borgström designed the new Aseda sticker.

Well, I didn't had any problem with it being a Ryd jug, but I had seen simmilar ones online and they were not quite the same... didn't have such pure lines as this has. I am then happy to now this is a Börgstrom design for Aseda :)

Thanks to Carola Ericsson for her help. She's a great specialist in Swedish glass!

Thanks to designqvist for telling me this is not a Blomberg design for Gullaskruf, but a piece of Alvesta Glasbruk. I've found very little abut this glassworks and I guess it will be impossible to find out more, but I am happy that at least I know the factory maker of this beauty.

Thanks to designqvist for telling me this is not a Blomberg design for Gullaskruf, and pointing out this was an item from Alvesta Glasbruk. As soon as she told it I commented it on the Gullaskruf FB group, and AnnaLeena Norrbin posted two pictures in response: one yellow Ryd jug and a red Alvesta jug. The red Alvesta happened to be my red mystery jug, the yellow one, this Ryd one...

Well, I have to say that it should be this one, unless Alvesta made a very simmilar design in a very simmilar yellow glass... and it could be. Whenever I've seen Ryd jugs and have compared to this one I've always found the lines in mine are more straight and those in Ryd jugs tend to be less straight, but it could also be due to the angle of the picture... Until I can prove that, this is a Ryd jug LOL

I've also found very little abut this glassworks and I guess it will be impossible to find out more, but I am happy that at least I know the factory maker of this beauty.

It has an amazing shade of yellow. being such a rare colour in glass I always find it very appealing. So far have just got three or four glass items in yellow... plus the matching glasses to this beauty!

    It's nearly impossible to find a good yellow in glass. You are lucky!

    Well, this ONE is sort of orangeish, but at least I'vegot the Holmegaard HJERTEVAS that has an amazing yellow (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/39156-hjertevas-sidse-werner-holmegaard-197?in=user) and oneofthe Iittala HALO candleholders (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/47096-halo-candleholders-harri-koskinen-iitt?in=user)... and just remembered my yellow CARNABY vase! (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/41284-carnaby-vases-per-ltken-holmegaard?in=user)

    Carnaby is wonderfull but doesn't count, because they are not transparent. I nearly bought one the other day, but they are expensive! The candleholder, yes. Did you know that yellow is one of the "expensive" colors in Iittala? Three times as expensive as blue.

    I know, I know... thats why I haven't got a yellow KIVI yet. This one I got secondhand and think I paid almot nothing for it. As for the Carnaby, I've got a spare one, white inside.
