    These were a few of the pieces I picked up two days ago. I like the Orrefors Colora range. The blue one I think dates to 1955 and was designed by Sven Palmquist, Orrefors (dimensions: w: 13 cm, h: about 5 cm.) .I also got two orange ones. They are really heavy and chunky.
    The yellow vase is by Erik Höglund and is signed H 1672/110. It has a polished pontil and is again nice and chunky. The glass becomes translucent half way down. I do not know what this range by Erik Höglund is called but I really like its simplicity and the vibrancy of the colour. It looks like vaseline glass.
    The plate is by an Australian firm called Ellis a pottery set up by Dagmar and Miloslav Kratochvil in Abbotsford, Melbourne, in 1953. Immigration in the post-war period gave Australia many talented potters.

      Thank you scandinavian_pieces yet again.

      My favotite track of all time is the B52's Hot Lava!
      Turn on your lava light
      Fire, oh volcano, over you
      Don't let your lava love turn to stone
      Keep it burnin'
      Keep it burnin' here at home
      Oooo Hot Lava

      And now it's a design principle!
