    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)

      Thanks Kevin. The stall looked bare on Sunday with no light tables as the partner didn't seem there, so for some reason things looked less! I only spotted second pass...pretty happy!

      Oh right! They had a clear Strombergshyttan too. I got distracted by Brian Hirst while looking at it. Got a bit carried away obviously and missed them.

      can you cure the glass disease?
    8. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      I don't think so Marty.
      Looks like they have both been etched and it's almost impossible to get inside.
      I tried a bit of a polish but it had little effect.
      Do you know of any cure other than a deep polish of the glass?

      If it is just that white milkiness you can soak fill several times with demineralized water they put in irons and batteries put n warm place and over time the minerals dissolve

      OK I'll try that. Thanks!
