This signed vase was designed by Karl Bengt Eugén Edenfalk. Sadly the glass world lost this excellent designer last year. It was made by Kosta Boda between 1978 & 1989 when he worked there. It stands over 12" tall and is about 4" in diameter. The shape is simple and modern The glass is a heavy clear crystal. The walls of the vase are quite thick to accommodate the optical lens effect that is molded into the glass, and which produces a delightful distortion effect. The lenses also throw interesting highlights and shadows. It is signed on the base "KOSTA 48627 EDENFALK". A nice example of contemporary Swedish art glass. It also still bears the original Kosta Boda sticker.
