Arnold Larson Collection, Inc
I came across a couple of very sleek-looking art glass animal figurines that I had packed away over 16 years ago. I had received them both as gifts in the early nineties Both have a small round paper label, blue with silver lettering - Larson Crystal U.S.A. Made. Heavy like paperweights with a very fine finish. I have been trying to find information regarding Larson Crystal, but having a hard time finding any information on the web. Finally found a little company history so thought I would share.
Arnold Larson, Inc is a Scandinavian importer of Swedish goods and gift shop located in Poughquag, New York. They also manufacture the Arnold Larson Collection on their premises in their glass-blowing factory. They were founded by Arnold and Helen Larson in 1945 and started operations out of the basement of their home.
The Arnold Larson, Inc company is still operated by family members. The Arnold Collection is mouth-blown and hand formed glass and features animal sculptures, vases, holiday ornaments and paperweights.
