Orrefors Brand 1980

I happened to come across these images in a large lot of slides that I bought on eBay:

Most "vacation" pictures are of standard views—attractions that have been restored and buffed to a timeless sheen. This strange triptych depicts a potentially disastrous event, although the business has survived, thirty-five years later. The Orrefors Glassworks is located in Sweden, in the town of the same name.

A Flippism is the Key exclusive scoop, 35 years later!

"Brand" is Swedish for fire.

This is lovely.

I just picked up a slide projector for a dollar at a rummage sale.
