    Vrote abot the Spun vase from Skruf here:
    http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/82934-spun-vase-bengt-edenfalk-for-skruf?in=user
    Now it has got a friend, a little shorter but of the same color underlay and form. Bengt Edenfalk stands for design.

    I found it today when we made a trip to Flygsfors, the glasswork where Paul Kedelv and Viktor Berndt was designers in the mid/late 1900s. The glasswork in Flygsfors has been closed since 1979, but glassblowing on a smaller scale was until about 15 years ago. A small shop called "Johans glass/Anders glassliperi" (http://andersglassliperi.se/4.php) selling glass from different Swedish glassworks still remain, and it also accepts glass for repairs there. Besides the small Spun vase I found some wine and beer glasses in Hatuna series from Strombergshyttan, to complete what was lacking for me.

      Hey well done, rebessin. It's great!
      On the topic of Flygsfors did you see the ceramic piece with the Flygsfors sticker?

      Oh, I missed that floor vase. Interesting! Have seen one before online. Looks like ceramic but it's glass as I can read. Must visit Johan's glasses again, they had many fine pieces of Swedish mid Century glass there.

      It's glass! Thanks rebessin. I'm non-plussed! Doh! I want one!
