Leerdam Unica bottle 1958
signed A.D. Copier Leerdam Unica CB 11 ( CB year nr for 1958 and the 11th unica piece made that year) It is about 35 cm high and around 30 cm wide
blown and hand formed by master glassblower L van der Linden.
the characteristic 2 ovals were created by local heating of the round shape
and then in stead of blowing air in the air got sucked out creating the 2 ovals and also deforming the original top.
it weights 8.5 kilo
I am so HAPPY with it
