    This small carafe, 18cm high, and the glasses were produced in Turbinglas-technique, that is with regular physical rills in spirals. I can't say you how they made it. But I know that this technique existed already in earlier times and also in Murano. I know only of two glass factories wich produced glass in this technique in Sweden in the Fifties, Hovmantorp and Gullaskruf. At Hovmantorp, where these glasses were called "Snoddas", the designer was Signe Persson-Melin, at Gullaskruf Lennart Andersson. I think, he is the man since I saw often turbinglas in this specific color which was attributed to Andersson. I am really fascinated by the regularity of the rills in this very fine glass and the patterns and moirés which it forms when you hold it into the light.

      This looks a lot like a bowl I have from Gullaskruf.

      Out of interest Cobalt, do you know what the pattern was called by Gullaskruf?
      I had thought it was called Snoddas, but I trust your knowledge when you say that was Hovmanthorp's name.

      a really great piece this technique gives a stunning effect .I think looking at the web that the Gullaskruf pieces by Lennart Andersson are called Snoddas if i am wrong someone will set me straight.

      I am not quite sure. I guess that Hovmantorp called it "Snoddas" and Gullaskruf "Turbinglas" or vice versa. Their products were very similar.

      Thanks for your loves and comments!
