This was my big purchase at the Collectors Fair on the weekend, but even this I think was a bargain. The glass guy there (like many others) was not having a good day and was happy for a sale!
Designed by Vicke Lindstrand in 1953 this is a beautifully simple design of two hollow pieces attached to form the vase. I have seen these vases called "fish" vases but then a lot of Lindstrand's work had a fish theme!
Height 21cm (8in) Engraved to base Kosta LH1661
The two vases accompanying were thrown in to the deal for free, as both have glass sickness. I'm still happy to have them, and with water and flowers in them I won't notice.
On the left: Strombergshyttan "Sputnik" vase B895, Asa Stromberg 1950s, 22cm (8.5in)
On the right: Orrefors vase 3690, Nils Landberg, 1950s, 22cm (8.5in)
