    GW find today. It measures 6" H x 4.25" L x 2" W. The top is ground sharply parallel to the base. It had its original label, a tiny rectangular silver foil label with a small "BODA" inscription which was just readable to my naked eye. Using a jewelers loupe, I could read "Handblown" above that and "Kosta Boda Sweden" below it. I soaked it in my kitchen sink for a few minutes to clean it up and the label still appeared to be firmly attached, but it either came loose while I was drying it or popped off during the trip from my kitchen to my living room where I was going to photograph it. After a careful search, I couldn't find it, but it is a tiny label, so I will do a hands and knees search later. I paid $1.99 minus whatever my veterans discount was. I like Kosta Boda glass, great quality and attractive for those who appreciate minimalism.

      Beautiful Kosta Boda vase, and even more significant today. I love the weightiness of their glass, you feel confident handling it (this from someone who has unfortunately injured more delicate brands)

      I went to Kosta Boda factory town of Lessebo last month and sadly, almost everything was closed for Midsummer...4 days though? Geez.

      Well that stinks, valentino97! I hope it was not too long a trip and that you will be able to go back soon. Might want to call them ahead of time and make sure they are doing business as usual, next time! Thanks for loving my KB vase, though!
