Ramnåsa glassworks

With the help of a wood model at Dädesjö folk museum you can learn about how window glass was blown at Ramnåsa glassworks, in the neighbouring village of Ramnåsa.

Brigitta Andersson from Dädesjö folk museum has written about the piece:
“The innermost museum room holds a collection of hand carved wooden figures depicting the work at Ramnåsa window glassworks, in use between 1915 and 1932. The wooden figures were made by Fritz Franzén who worked at the glassworks before moving to Oxelösund. The model makes the production of window glass very clear. Four teams are at work at the glassworks. A team consists of two people where one collects the melted glass at the furnace and the master then blows the glass cylinder until it is almost two meters long. The collection also contains a blowpipe, a glass cylinder, curtain rods made of glass and a window with glass from the works.”
