Help! Stupid Dutch/English woman who cannot understand your language. :rolleyes: I apologise, most humbly.

I have found these perfume bottles, signed Elme. I thought maybe Edvin Ollers, but I cannot find much information on Elme Glasbruk at all. I have been searching the Internet and read all the books that I have.
Any information would be very gratefully appreciated.

Have you read: 20th century factory glass by Lesley Jackson? There a page about Elme.

From what I can read in this book about Elme, he may well have designed these pieces you linked to.

I have read:
Millers 20th Century Glass. On page 75 it says that Edvin Ollers designed Venise style glass. Which is what these remind me of. Very Italian in design, but signed Elme.
I have also read: Scandinavian Glass, Bill Geary (great guy), Fire & Sea and Smoke & Ice, Leslie Pina.
I have the names of the designers, but never having seen a signed Elme piece, have no idea how to date it, so that I can put a designers name to it.

Thank you so much for your reply :-)

I can take picture of this text for you to read here if you like? Ollers signed with Elme and Ollers, that is all I know. He was working at Elme between 1926-1930.

Hi Della,
if you go to the bottom of the page you can choose english as default language(it's where it says "Svenska" in a white field). It makes it easier to understand the functions of the forum.
