Pukeberg, founded in 1871 produced mainly lamps and art glass.

Pukeberg was founded in 1871 and produced mainly pressed household glasswares. In 1884, Arvid Bohlmark bought the company and became part of AB Bohlmarks Lampfabrik, producing lamps, lampshades and oil lamps. From 1906 until 1915, Elis Bergh worked at the company. In the 1920s, the company specialised in large glass globes for advertising signs. In the 1930s, Pukeberg started with producing decorative glass. In 1935, Uno Westerberg started to work for Pukeberg, where he designed light fixtures and decorative glasswares. He stayed at Pukeberg until 1978. Goran Warff and Ann Wolff joined in 1958 and left in 1964. Eva Englund worked at Pukeberg from 1964 until 1973, and returned in 1989. Erik Hoglund worked freelance for Pukeberg from 1978 until 1981. Other designers that worked at Pukeberg include Staffan Gellersted, Ginilla Lindahl, Lars Sestervik, Ragnhild Alexanderssin and Carin Nordling.

Most glass produced by Pukeberg is unsigned and only labelled with a sticker. However, some important sculptural pieces are known to have been signed by the artists.
