Got this pretty piece the other day with no mark. Just shy of 11" tall.
I don't actually even know what it is but I'm guess it's a candleholder or for votives perhaps.
The form is so familiar to me but Im drawing a complete blank.
The glass, its thickness and curves are very similar to Per Lutken's Selandia bowl for Holmgaard.
Any feedback would be great. Thanks guys!

Not much help, but have a look at the work of Armando Jacobino for Kummela glass in Finland.
His work is usually signed, but there are always exceptions.
Good luck,

Hi Tim, thanks for your input!
I hadn't heard of him before you mentioned his name but after googling I do see one particular bowl by him called Kiulu that does resemble my piece.
His designs are definitely very nice.

I'm sure one of our glass experts ID'd these bowls as Norwegian.

Had a look in my reference books, Kumela also made similar pieces and in this shape so could be one of theirs

Hi there, do you have a link of the thread that ID'd this bowl as Norwegian? Two others are saying its possibly Kumela. Thanks so much!

First reply by Timo also mentioned Kumela. Denbydump thinks it's Norwegian. Getting interesting!

Magnor of Norway did make bowls in this style. Quite a few makers in this style but the shape of the OP's is consistent with Kumela

I do see the edges being very similar on that bowl and mine. Thanks!

You know the Magnor bowls remind me so much of the Selandia bowl designed by Per Lutken for Holmgaard.
I think you are correct with this shape being closest to Kumela pieces.
Thanks so much!

Here are some pictures of my Kummela object.
The shape and the angles are not quite the same as Jeffingtons.
My only doubt about yours not being from a leading scandinavian
factory is the base finish has not been polished.
Thats only my opinion.
Keep looking, thats the interesting part.
