This Charming House

Here's my new little bowl that I bought at a second hand store a couple of weeks ago.

Isn't it cool?  I paid $11.00 for it.

I bought it because I like it and I also because I thought it was Blenko Glass, which I support because it's made in West Virginia.  It is signed on the bottom so I figured I'd check it out.

It turns out, it's not Blenko.

According to the mark,  it is Orrefors and it was apparently made by Vicke Lindstrand in Sweden in 1940. 

It is marked with the number 2235/5 on the bottom.

I went online and found the one that was marked 2235/3.  It sold at auction for $450.00.

I guess this means that my $11.00 investment was quite astute, no?  It always makes me happy when I get something very cool for a steal!


  1. NICE!! Don't you just love steals!

  2. Fantastic! What a beautiful bowl...and great feeling knowing that you scored such a find!
