    Vase/Bowl is a good question because online I have seen this shape listed as both.
    Etched on bottom Kosta Boda then the next following line I can't make out followed by B. Vallien followed by 59609

    Smoothed irregular rim.
    Outside feels to be sandcasted not smooth has a textured surface.
    Another Salvation Army find yesterday. When I spotted it my eyes only seen the "Blue" and had to complaints that it is Kosta Boda all the better.

    I will have to search some catalogs to get more detailed info on this piece.

      Thank you Sean
      I told my sister Brenda that "Sean would love this piece"....she said "who is this Sean" I just laughed and said one of my CW friends/collector that has an amazing collection of glass. Told her I learn a lot from my CW friends and then blamed all of you on here for my glass hoarding... lol.

      Bowl!! just had my first cup of coffee!!
    4. melaniej melaniej, 3 years ago
      Sean thanks for verifying it's a bowl. Looks like a bowl to me and not a vase.

      Wow! Great day at the Salvo yesterday!

      I've seen these with the irregular rims referred to as 'Chiko' vases and bowls but I don't know much more than that.

      I noticed the ref to "chiko" also researching online.

      It was a good day at the Salvo....doesn't happen often there. Like the GW better ;)

      Wow Melanie, you found this in the Salvation Army? You are one lucky girl! I love the color, the rregular rim and, having owned several of this style pieces, the texture... congrats! A lot of these pieces are inscribed "artist coll" (artist collection), so I believe that's what the illegible portion reads.

      Here's an example:
