bought today - an Orrefors olympic torch candle holder.
I thought at first that it was probably Finnish and made for the Helsinki Olympic games, but having poked around on the internet, i came across another which apparently had a sticker for Orrefors. Anyone know when they were made?

I know I'm 3 years too late here, but it was designed by Lars Hellsten and dates from around 1980/81.

Sven Palmqvist 4303/11 bowl, signed on the base. 11cm in diameter and 7.5cm high. I'm slightly intrigued by the engraved mark which says "Orrefors CP" (looks more like a C or an L than an S) and "4303/111". I wonder if it is just a malformed S and why the extra 1 on the serial number. If it is SP does that imply that it was produced post 1980? Unless the C is the engraver - although the only engraved thing on it is the signature! Nice to have the box too. I'd love to know when it was designed if anyone knows :)
