Glassware from a 1970’s Design Exhibition at the Textile Museum
“Glasmästeri” = Glasscutter’s Workshop (January 2010)
My New Year’s Eve table 2011. I don’t have a whole lot of ‘fine’ glassware and china, but I do have these (six) glasses, which I only use on festive occasions. They were my mother’s - maybe even her mother’s, I’m not sure. Mum passed these on to me about twenty years ago because she also had a set of similar ones after my other grandma.
The “snowball” candle holder (for tealights) is a very popular model from the Swedish glassworks Kosta Boda. (Designed in 1973 by Ann Wärff; I think I’ve also had mine since back in the mid 70s.) The origin of the other candle holders I’m not sure of.
