Wide diamond-shaped Strombergshyttan glass vase, circa 1950s

900.00

Heavy blown diamond-shaped vase in Strombergshyttan's signature blue-silver glass. Sweden, circa 1950s. Etched "Stromberg T383" on bottom. 6-1/2" h x 9-3/4" w x 4-1/2" d. Excellent condition; scratches on bottom.

Lindfors glassworks was founded in 1876 and changed its name to Strombergshyttan in 1933, when Edward Stromberg, former head of Orrefors, took over the the company. He and his son, Eric, created a process to make glass with a bluish-silver color, which became the dominant characteristic of Strombergshyttan glass. 

Gerda and Asta Stromberg designed much of the glass, along with designers Rune Strand and Gunnar Nylund. Althought most Strombergshyttan glass is signed with a production code, the designer is never noted on the glass. 

The Stromberg family sold the company to Orrefors in 1976. Orrefors closed it in 1979.
