Aseda Glassworks


Aseda glassworks produced a variety of coloured highly recognizable glass designs. Its glass is usually unsigned and only has a sticker. The sticker is often mistakenly read as “Seda”, because the “A” from Aseda is stylized as glassblower’s tools. The designs of Aseda characterize themselves by their unusual shapes and vases often have a heavy, almost paperweight like base. The main designer who is responsible for these odd designs at Aseda was Bo Borgstrom, who joined Aseda in 1955. Krona-Bruken AB bought Aseda in 1974. They also owned three other glassworks: Maleras, Gullaskruf, Skruf and Björkshult. When Krona-Bruken AB went bankrupt in 1977, Aseda ceased production.
