Hi -
I'm trying to track down the maker of my heavy glass decanter. I believe the stopper is not original, but it does the trick for the time being.

It is about 6.5" to the rim and it has a fully polished, flat bottom. The base is thick, heavy glass. The sides of the bottle alternate a series of horizontal ribs (like a ladder) with 3 deep, squared off thumbprint type insets. The label looks like it might be from a brand of liquor and states: "Golden Crown; E&R; Sweden".

I've seen 2 examples that are sooooo similar but they don't have the 'ladder' decorations and, when viewing from the side, the distinction between the colored, interior glass and the clear, thick outer layer of glass is much more pronounced.

So do I have an Aseda piece or a similar knock-off? Anyone know what liquor it held?

Ok, hope my pix work

I saw this on the net
The E&R stands for Ebeling & Reuss, an import business located in Pennsylvania who imported various giftware-type items from countries such as Germany and France in the mid 20th century,

it was glass and the label was the same as your but with different country.

sorry but I don't know the origin of your swedish glass company ,

Thank you, Big Ed! I'll try researching in that direction and hope someone can confirm or deny the Aseda possibility! :)

I have seen this same body associated with Czech, but they had a slightly different stopper.

Thank you Jack, for offering your insights.

This stopper isn't original, so we can't use that as a gauge for determining the maker.

I was under the impression that the label indicated that the piece was Swedish.

The decanter could well be Åseda and Börne Augustsson (not Bo Borgström) imported by Ebeling & Reuss in Philadelphia.

Jakjo, thank you for checking my thread and offering your thoughts. I'm so glad you told me what the forum stated, because I can't read Swedish! LOL I can pick out a few words, but I would have been lost, for sure! ;)

I appreciate your help! :) It's terrific information!

Hi, I missed to write that Börne Augustsson designed the more famous vases in the late 1940s.
