    A thrift shop find for $3 with the original box and brochure. This crystal bear is about 6" high x 4" wide x 2.5" thick. It is a big hunk of glass. According to the brochure, Jonasson used sandblasting to create his pieces. His signature and a serial number are etched into the glass. I could not get a decent image of that, though. According to a chat post that I found this was made 1974-1978.

      Sean68 posted one of these on CW about four years ago and his pictures are much better than mine, but I wanted to get the documentation that came with mine on CW.

      Wonderful find, in addition to get the paperwork with it, make this crystal even more valuable.
      I have a few on CW over the years never being fortunate to find one with paperwork, Mat.J definitely has the 1970 look on the picture.
      Agree with you, those crystals always gave some troubles to take pictures but I realize over the years Black background help to get this done.
