<< Back to Encyclopedia Home Page

Alsterfors started off as an iron foundry, but began making glass in 1885, when the factory was bought by J. A. Gottwald Fogelberg, who was the manager of Kosta. Alsterfors became part of the Association of Swedish Crystal Manufacturers in 1903. Since then it changed hands several times. Designers at the factory include Edvin Ollers, Ingrid Atterberg, Fabian Lundkvist, and of course Per Olof Strom. The factory closed in 1980.
