Pukeberg is famous for lamps and for colourful utility glass. They also do little glass objects like animals (small, approx. 5 cm), vases, transparent utility glass and much more. Have a look at their website to get ideas of what to expect. It was the first glass factory and shop I visited during my 3 days stay in the region because it was the one farthest from my accommodation at Bergdala. Somehow I wasn’t tempted to purchase goods already because I knew that I would get Bergdala and Kosta items. Now, in retrospective, I wish I had bought at least some of these cute glass fruit. Ok, next time.
Pukeberg Hytta is located east of Växjo in the outskits of Nybro city. From Växjö, drive road 25 eastward until Nybro, follow the signs for Kalmar until you see the sign for Pukeberg Glass Bruk. From the exit, it is less than 1 km on the right side of the road.
