I thought I'd never post anything on CW and merely would stick to reading, learning and discussing. But I need to know more about several glass items I have, and this is a good online forum for putting questions and getting answers!
I begin with a flacon by Swedish Asta Strömberg for Strömbergshyttan. The colours are two shades of pink, overlaid with clear glass. On the bottom it is signed as shown in the last picture, and as I read it it says "88408 A.Sg. Strömbergshyttan" (though I thought that Asta's signature usually was A.S....?). Furthermore the bottle carries a sticker from the glassworks, saying "Studioglas Strömbergshyttan AB Sweden".
The bottle stands 10 cm high, and 13 cm when carrying the delicate little stopper.
The weight is close to 600 g.
When you look at the pictures you can see that the bottle isn't really symmetric. But this doesn't harm its beauty at all.
I hope that rebessin can tell me more about this lovely little glass object - when it was made, if it was part of a glass series, if Asta Strömberg created other similar perfume bottles, etc.!
