Ohhhh, there's been so much talking about this model here at CW and on the Swedish glass groups at FB!!! But of course much talking is needed when two Swedish glass factories make virtually the same model at more or less the same time.
When I first presented my yellow jug as Gullaskruf (what I thought I had bought) many came to tell it was a Ryd jug, but I had seen the Ryd model before and didn't agree with it... people presented pics of jugs with the Ryd label but I was sure it wasn't the same model. Months later I found the answer srfing the net: a labeled early Aseda design, most probably by Bo Borgström, that fitted exactly with the shape of my yellow jug! A couple of weeks later I found the Ryd one on auction and got it. And here you can see te wor of tem together... they're almost identical twins!
BUT... I am sure there is another Ryd jug with an almost identical design except for having more curvy lines. I trust I'll get it sometime.
PD: I have seen an Aseda jug in blue at the current Aseda exhibition with the very same glasses I've got. So there is no doubt: the yellow jug is Aseda.
