Dansk: Blandt de ældste efterladenskaber fra glasproduktionen i Kosta i Småland er dette grøntonede vinduesglas fra 1742. Den grønne farve skyldes forekomster af jern i sand fra Småland. I midten ses det markante puntelmærke (også kaldet okseøje), hvor glaspusterens blæserør har været monteret. Glasset er udstillet i museet på Kosta Glasbruk
