Welcome to our collection of Swedish glassware from Orrefors. At iapetus we've a bit of a thing about glass, and we've been a proud official Orrefors UK stockist for the past 10 years!
The glass factory of Orrefors was founded in 1898, replacing an iron factory which had been operating since 1726. The name of Orrefors most likely originates from the name of the Orranäsa lake, with the Swedish word "fors" added to it, symbolizing the river by which the former iron factory was situated. Orrefors have become widely acclaimed for their beautifully clean cut designs; both experimental art glass as well as their stunning range of table ware have been exhibited worldwide.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
