This is Bob. He is 7.5" (19 cm) tall and was made in Sweden by a company called Reijmyre, probably in the 1970's. He stands next to all of my glass to show people how big each piece is. If Bob could talk, he'd share some great stories told in glass!

Heinrich Oppelt, shown in the photo, engraved this miniature vase at Reijmyre Glasbruk, probably in the 1950's. Reijmyre, founded in 1810, is the second oldest glass mill in Sweden, and is still in operation. It was one of about…
