I had no doubt this was a Swedish design but... who made it? which glassworks produced it? My guessing all the time was Bö Börgstrom for Aseda but never found any data to prove it. By the way, it's got matching glasses which just look like the jug with almost identical proportions.
But yesterday designqvist told me that my yellow jug was Alvesta, a brand I had never heard of before, and I changed the name to its post, and I also commented that on the Gullaskruf FB group, where last week I uploaded its picture. That was when I thought it was Gullaskruf... haha, all this sounds like a huge mess... (well, I have to say someone told me it reminded him of Ryd). Anyway, what happened next is that AnnaLena Norrbin posted two pictures: one of a jug simmilar to the yellow Ryd one, and one of a real Alvesta jug... this jug!
Thus I'be been able to identify this jug as an Alvesta. There's so little information about Alvesta online there is no way I'm going to find out more about this jug. Such a pity!
The very best thing: yesterday I was able to identify three jugs!
