    What do you do when you are at a Garage Sale and are confronted with the ugliest Kosta Boda vase you have ever seen, and its a quarter? That's right, a quarter.
    Well you buy it.
    Sean Bellin told me the designer but I can't remember, and can't read the signature.
    I thought there was attic dust on it but it is some sort of sand that is suppose to be there.
    I've seen other shapes like this around, but they are much much prettier.
    Anyone have any thoughts on this piece?
    Thoughts on buying just because it is so freakin cheap?

      Hey, that's a Bertil Vallien vase and it's not the ugliest thing ever produced by Kosta boda. It's a very nice one!!!
    26. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      JH, you are soo right about my Sista!!! She attracts signed pieces like flies to food!
    27. AmberRose AmberRose, 6 years ago
      No team, it isn't the photo, it really has sand like substance sitting on top, baby poop brown with speckles. I am a magnet for ugly. I actually buy treasures because they are soooo ugly they are cute. Plus, I'm afraid no one will love them. Oh yea, these the dork coming out...
      Heading to Florida this morning. Will probably be on more than ever due to not working...trying to not work I mean.
    28. toracat toracat, 6 years ago
