Product Description


This is a highly unusual example of a good quality Swedish lead glass decanter. Strömbergshyttan of Hovmantorp, Småland, Sweden, began production in 1933 and was acquired by Orrefors in 1979. During its history it has employed many famous Scandinavian designers. The thick walled decanter has a slight blue tinge and is rectangular in section, with an arched panel on each side and rounded ‘shoulders’. The base is polished flat with a central polished out pontil. It is hand engraved with the word ‘Strömberg’ and the code ‘E 38’. The letter corresponds to the type of vessel – in this case, ‘E’ is a decanter. Consecutive numbers were assigned to designs. Design number E 54, for example, was produced in 1936, so this decanter dates to shortly before this. The engraved design appears to have been added about 30 years later, as in addition to the Stromberg mark there is a separate hand engraved signature, which reads ‘CLAIRE ROME 1966’. Claire Rome was well-known for her engraving on Swedish art glass. This particular example bears a coat of arms consisting of an eagles head above a shield containing three crowns. The whole is surrounded by a laurel wreath tied at the base with a bow. The stopper is engraved with a capital ‘R’ over a further laurel wreath. The decanter has a total height, including the stopper, of approximately 23.5cm, with base measurement of about 11.0cm by 7.0cm. It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks, although there is some very faint watermarking in the base. This is only visible on the closest of inspection.
