    I found these two fish a couple of weeks ago. Sean Bellin immediately got some pics and texts because they went above my strict five dollar spend. After much debate, I made the plunge. Picture two shows one of two flaws (bubble?). Picture three shows the signature...looks like Orrefors to me (and Sean) but I cannot find them anywhere.
    Help!!!!!

      "Of" is a quickie for Orrefors that is used on glasses and small production pieces.
      Nice!

      That's what I thought but can't find another at all!
      Thanks V!

      My Ingeborg Lundin yellow and purple small vases are also signed "of", so that proves yours are!!! :)

      By the way, did you know you can write to the people from Orrefors and ask them about these fish items?
    8. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      I was pretty confident regarding the "of" but literally cannot find another anywhere. I like the idea of writing to them, I haven't done that before and I need to break the seal!!
      Thank you everyone! I appreciate the love.

      Bengt Edenfalk was hired as a designer in the mid-1950s. He designed more than 70 different place settings for Skruf! In 1978 he started at Kosta Glassworks instead. Lars Hellsten was employed as a designer in 1964. He devoted himself mainly to cast, centrifuge and pressed glass. In 1972 he moved to Orrefors.

      Hi Eye4!
      I've been reading rebessin's comments about the amalgamation of the smaller factories in that period.
