    The Elme glassworks began in 1917 as a subsidiary of the Färe glassworks in Sibbhult. It was founded by the Swedish Nobel Laureate Gustuf Dahlen .... the inventor of the gas powered lighthouse.

    Lenses !!!

    Bankruptcy in the Twenties and reinvented as a manufacturer of glass homewares in 1923 and yet again as Elme Glasbruk in 1931. This happened a few more times in 1936 and in 1940, 1960 until it closed its doors in 1970.

    Over that time many important glass designers worked there including Edwin Ollers responsible for some great Art Deco designs.

    And in the swinging Sixties there was this 'Peacock' range.

    I had been after one of these for years and this one appeared at my local oppie a few weeks ago !!!

    No idea who is responsible for the range. The Swedes are keeping the secret close to their chests. There are striped versions of the red and yellow but this is my favourite. You can actually feel the pattern on the inside of the vase. Cut from the top it is a blown method of decoration I believe.

    LISE recently put up another version in the Peacock range too !!!!

      A wonderful find Kevin. Interesting the way it's been made. The feather pattern looks like it has been worked into the white and then it has been cased in the orange. Something like that? Fantastic.
      Amazing we have seen two here this week when I have never seen one before!
