Artist/Maker
Place of origin

Designed by Gunnar Cyren, for Orrefors glassworks. Production of the "Pop"series was expensive due to the difficulties of successfully combining coloured opaque glass. Each colour heats and cools at a different rate. This design was especially popular since it combines the Swedish national colours of blue and yellow. Incised with "Orrefors Expo B 611-67 Gunnar Cyren"
