A heavy indigo water jug with internal ribbing. Polished pontil, and foot-rim. Any ideas on the mark?
Just guessing Scandanavian.

I suspect it is B 684, if so an item designed by Ellis Bergh and made by Kosta (Sweden), possibly as far back as the late 1930s. Bergh was the chief designer at Kosta from around 1929 to 1950.

Thanks Jo, I don't think it's a B. Either X/, XY, or I. The numbers could be any of
186, 184, 686, 684, but thanks for some clues.

Not that many of them do look like a B. I have seen many like this. Another point to note is all the other characteristics are spot on especially the optic rib (favoured by Bergh) and the deco-ish shape.

Kosta, Elis Bergh designs Empty Elis Bergh for Kosta Kunstglas

Post by Qnssekr September 11th 2022, 8:28 pm

Hi, I found this heavy lead crystal vase that reminds me of the series of vases that Anne Nilsson designed for IKEA back in the 90’s.
The signature has worn away but the numbers b.766 remain. When I first spotted this vase I instinctively thought Orrefors and Anne has designed for them. Has anyone ever come across this vase? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Much older. Elis Bergh for Kosta Kunstglas, 1930s or 40s. Can't remember the year the number is from but should be easy enough to find

Kosta, Elis Bergh designs Empty Possible Whitefriars? - Elis Bergh for Kosta

Post by TWB June 18th 2023, 5:31 pm

Hi all,

Any Whitefriars pieces I have I can identify but not this one mainly because its signed B2089.

Its a smoky grey colour and has the 5 lobed base. yet its more of a bowl and the signature is abnormal.

Any help would be great as its been sat on my office floor for about 4 months now  Kosta, Elis Bergh designs 1f602

Elis Bergh for Kosta, Sweden. Whitefriars didn't sign their glass (with a few exceptions).

Thank you so much

I was so confused as like you say Whitefriars don't sign so I was going round in circles
