Vienna, Austria, Europe

I am Vienna based, Swedish-Austrian, and having spent all my summers on the Swedish southwest coast, I learnt to love Scandinavian design right from the cradle. Now I am Vienna based, Swedish-Austrian, and having spent all my summers on the Swedish southwest coast, I learnt to love Scandinavian design right from the cradle. Now I run my own shop with Scandinavian vintage design from the 1950ies/60ies in Vienna: www.designqvist.at. My focus is on flatware, glass, textiles, lighting, enamelled ware, salt&pepper mills - flatware and glass being my personal favourites. As I run a blog of my own I have not time to actively use Collectors Weekly as a pinboard. But I appreciate it as a valuable source of knowledge and enjoy very much reading and joining other glass collectors' discussions. I find useful information in almost every thread! (Read more)

  1. The mystery seems to be as good as solved! I posted the same question regarding this pitcher in a Swedish forum, and thanks to a Swedish lady I now am pretty sure that this pitcher was made at the Joh...
  2. Thanks for mentioning my Cascade-posting, cobaltcobold! You've got a beautiful bottle there! It's funny with all these coincidences: I have another vase in this series which is waiting to be photograp...
  3. Hi rebessin! I adore this yellow series by Mona Morales-Schildt! The yellow-orange is gorgeous, and the technique and workmanship are just incredible! I had a bowl once, 24cm in diameter and signed li...
  4. Thank you for your explanations, rebessin, and thanks to you all for reading and welcoming! I have more unidentified glass on my shelves, so don't worry, AmberRose, I'll be back... ;-)
  5. Thank you so much, rebessin! (Och hälsa din syster att jag tackar så mycket för hjälpen!) So the "A." is part of the model number, but what does "Sg." stand for, do you know? Was the full name of ...
  6. Thanks rebessin! I now remember that you wrote about the 2 different glass studios but the signature A.Sg. really is very missleading so I never doubted it is an object by Asta Strömberg! I googled...
  7. Thanks for the welcome, Moonstonelover!
  8. Great engraving work! It is always stunning to see how 3-dimensional the effect can be when only decimillimeters of the surface were removed. (rebessin, I need your help in a Strömberg-case, could ...
  9. I've got the impression that there was (and is!) Swedish glass in every Swedish household: Vases, pitchers, glasses, beer glasses, shot glasses, table ware, bottles, ashtrays, boxes, candle sticks, pr...
  10. Another non-Scandinavian temptation in glass! Very beautiful!
  11. Again very beautiful items by Nylund that you are sharing here with us, rebessin! There is something ethereal about this series, really very beautiful!
  12. Very beautiful items! It's really a pity Wiesenthalhütte wasn't based in Scandinavia: Makes it hard for me to stick to my Scandinavian focus, glass-wise. (Actually I sometimes do make an exception as ...
  13. A very beautiful object!
  14. It is a nice bowl that you are having there, cobaltcobold! The green stripe works well in this design but I still couldn't imagine any green stripe in any of those Cascade-items that I have. The numbe...
  15. By the way: I once saw the decanter in the middle of your first picture in a mustard yellow colour: rebessin, do you know if the entire series was produced in yellow too, or for that sake, in other co...
  16. Yes rebessin, let's hope so! @ artislove: Thanks for your words! You are right, I do have good taste :-) But I don't feel I should post here as I am not merely a collector but a trader, running a s...
  17. Nice to see so many of Vallien's blue objects gathered! I adore his Blue series! Your pictures show very well how close this part of his glassworks was to his works as a sculptor. I always find these ...
  18. Very nice shape! Makes me think of Mona Morales-Schildt's Ventana-series a bit, too, though she worked with several colours.
  19. I have a little bowl from this series with exactly the same measurements. The threads are arranged in a slightly denser frequency and have 3 different colours (white and 2 nuances of brown). So far I ...
  20. Very beautiful! Such exquisite colours! Your postings make clear that Nylund was a great glass artist, rebessin!
  21. Dear rebessin! Your glass collection is awesome, as is your knowledge about glass and its history! I enjoy very much reading your contributions here and on your blog and learn a lot every time. Thank ...
  22. Spun is one of my favourites, too! Your vase is especially beautiful, I adore the shape! It was definitely a good idea of Edenfalk to make this series in overlay technique - thus they all seem to floa...
  23. Hi again, austrohungaro! This is just a suggestion, but you could ask Benny Movarp from Sweden for a shared administration of a FB group about Strömbergshyttan. He's already in charge of several group...
  24. ...yes, I'm aware of that but you know, being a one woman show... If I'd consider to do anything on FB I'd at first hand go there with my shop designqvist, and if I'd have energies for more FB-activit...
  25. ...hm, this is a good idea, austrohungaro, bur I fear I wouldn't have the time to administer a FB-forum. I'm running my shop all alone and know my limits. But you and rebessin maybe? I'd be your first...
  26. Hi vetraio50! I just uploaded a blog post on Stig Lindbergs Terma-dishes from 1955 recently, and discovered a nice similarity to his Pungo-works from the same period that gets obvious when looking at ...
  27. Hi rebessin, and thanks for this info! I picked up the information on the E180-shaker on antikviteter.net where somebody called "Bello" dated the shaker to somewhen in the 40s, saying it to be a desig...
  28. Hi austrohungaro, hej rebessin! I've got a very similar shaker to yours, austrohungaro, though it is not facetted but round. As far as I know it carries the number E180 and is a design from the 1940s ...
  29. Hi austrohungaro! Many people believe that "Pippi" was designed by Lindstrand but it wasn't. It was American Royal Arden Hickman (1893-1969) who designed the Pippi-series as early as 1937. If you happ...
  30. The first picture to the left shows a decanter from the Bouquet-series, the middle photo shows what in Swedish is called "jungfru" (= virgin) or "brännvingumma" (= hard to translate ... I'd suggest so...
  31. This is indeed a lovely piece of art in glass! A bit like an inverse counterpart to Nils Landbergs tulip glasses. I've never held an Äpple in my hands, is it heavy? It looks so lightweighted...
  32. I actually have a waisted vase in clear glass, 14 cm high, bottom 8cm, opening 5,5 cm. As it looks just like my pitcher and as I bought it in Vienna I presume it is Stölzle Oberglas as well, but you n...
  33. I'm pretty sure the yellow pitcher is not by Kjell Blomberg: I have seen a red one with a sticker saying it was made by the Swedish glass manufacturer Alvesta. You might get hits if you search the in...
  34. The green jug was made by the Austrian glass factory Stölzle Oberglas. I once had a green one, and I still have Kjell Blomberg's green pitcher for Gullaskruf. When I put them side by side it showed th...
