Literature

Literature: Ann–Marie Herlitz-Gezelius, ’Orrefors, Ett Svenskt Glasbruk’, Bokförlaget Atlantis,
Stockholm 1984. Pp 26-27. The young, recently employed Simon Gate was also asked to modernize
even the cut glass. He drew a couple of different models that was given the name 'Triton'
after Carl Milles' fountain containing a bronze clock with similar shape. The Triton model was executed
at Orrefors between 1916–1920.
