Given that Lagerfeld is teetotal, the range is somewhat ironic: ultra-clean-lined transparent, black or opaque white champagne flutes and coupes, and wine, water and liqueur glasses.
In collaboration with their talented designers Orrefors presents a new crystal collection every spring and autumn.
The collection is produced in an unlimited edition.
As a rule, however, retail and insurance/replacement values are about the same.
APPRAISER: I think in a retail shop, that this could sell for $35,000 to $45,000. And though there are no hard and fast rules, an object's auction price can often be half its retail value; yet for other objects, an auction price could be higher than retail.
Across the world people associate Orrefors with beautiful crystal.
Both the art glass and the utility glass make our everyday a bit more beautiful.
APPRAISER: What's the first thing you noticed about this? Aventurine are those little sparkles that you see, those little green sparkles, that's unusual, too. It's actually named after the air spirit in Shakespeare's The Tempest. The way this was made is that there was a hot molten blob of glass, what we call a parison.

The price can vary from 9 and ,800 based on the condition, age, materials and aesthetic value for a specific Orrefors Decorative Objects.
The Swedish design philosophy of “beautiful things for everyday life” is actualized in the glassware of Orrefors.
Two of the first artists hired by the firm were Simon Gate and Edward Hald, who worked initially in the organic Art Nouveau style, and later proved adept with the geometric imagery of the Art Deco period.
