Found recently at my favourite oppie an unsigned version of a Tribal vase in clear crystal. I have lusted after one for years and it finally came my way. The remnants of a Flygsfors sticker can be seen in the photos. I love the internal colours of the copper on glass contrasting with the patinated copper on the exterior. The glass protruding through the openings are a delight to my eye each morning.
Flygsfors closed down in 1979
The vase is just 5 3/8" h x 5" dia ( 13.7cm 12.7cm )
"In 1955, Wiktor Berndt joined Flygsfors to design light fixtures and art glass, and he would become Flygsfors second most well known designer. Before he came to Flygsfors, he studied at Kallstroms and then in Murano, Italy. In 1956, when Paul Kedelv left the company, Wiktor became the chief designer, and he continued as the chief designer until he left in 1974. Beginning in the early 1960s Wiktor began designing his most popular range of art glass, which consisted of mold-blown colored glass with modernistic surface reliefs that generally represented animals, people, or scenes."
