My hope is to return these one-of-a-kind works of art and cultural heritage to a place of respect in today's mass-produced society. Someday, I'll endow my collection to a museum dedicated to Swedish-American history, in honor of my ancestors who, as far back as my family can recall, were all proud Swedes. Update: I recently donated 100 pieces of engraved Swedish glass to the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia. That gift inspired the renovation of a gallery and the establishment of a permanent exhibit of this beautiful glass. Proud moment! I also started a website to display and sell some of the glass that no longer fits in my collection or the museum's. Feel free to take a look - the listings have lots of information on the piece.

  5. Hi, Rick. I'm wondering how you made the attribution to Pino Signoretto, may he rest in peace. I have a pair of figures like yours, but they are unsigned. I bought them in an auction two years ago, an...
  6. @racer4four Thank you. She came to me because she was filled with small scratches; I have polished many of them out, but I think her restoration is not quite finished. More work after the holidays...
