Orrefors Glassworks has stood a hundred years on two pillars: beautiful clear crystal and evolutionary design. Despite challenging technology, generations of skilled glass blowers and designers have repeatedly surprised us with innovative crystal creations. And they continue to surprise us!
Stunning Glass Bowls from Orrefors
Few glassmakers have the unique distinction of having their pieces canonized in the Metropolitan Museum of Art or serving as the table décor of choice for the Nobel prize dinner, but both honors belong to Orrefors. The famed Orrefors “Bowl” by Simon Gate — beloved for its elaborate crystal etchings — is part of the Met’s permanent collection and was sold to the museum in 1924. On top of that, the company’s striking stemware graces the table of the Nobel prize dinner in Stockholm each year. Didriks is proud to offer an array of stunning Orrefors bowls to carry on these distinguished traditions.
The Orrefors Glass Heritage
Orrefors was founded in 1898 in the Swedish village with the same name, where it began producing bottles and window glass. Over time, it added stemware and functional art glass pieces to its offerings. Highly collectible and endlessly attractive, early Orrefors bowls contributed to the now-iconic décor of the Art Nouveau period and helped to forge brand-new glassmaking techniques throughout the 20th century. Notably, the Orrefors bowl debuted a technique known as Ariel in 1945, which trapped air in the glass to create a colorful, unique visual effect.
