The Orrefors glassworks were founded in 1898 on the site of an older iron works. Up until 1913, the company produced mainly window glass and bottles. When Consul Johan Ekman bought the factory in 1913, Orrefors started to produce drinking glasses, vases and other house-ware items. In addition to individual pieces of crystal, the company made crystal stemware. The glass house came to be a leading producer during the interwar period. In more recent times the factory has also become noted for its chandelier-making. Many of the older designs are still produced today.

These elegant crystal flutes are the 'Carina' pattern, which was designed by Ingeborg Lundin (1921-1992), who worked for Orrefors from 1947- 1971. The 'Carina' range of stemware was designed in 1961 and has been discontinued for some time. Ingeborg Lundin was a winner of the Lunning Prize, the premier Scandinavian design award, in 1954, and she won a gold medal at the XI Milan Triennale of 1957.

The bottom of the clear bowl is surrounded by thumbprints which flow into the honeycomb cut stem and clear round base. Each piece is hand etched with the Orrefors mark 'of'. The flutes measure 8" in height, 2" across the top and 2 1/2" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and ready for your next dinner party.
