Presenting a superb vintage Scandinavian art glass vase from the Antikva range designed by the renowned artist Bertil Vallien for the quality glass producer Kosta Boda, as a part of their limited edition artist collection. This magnificent hand crafted vase has a highly appealing clean-lined modernist form and impressive colouration which perfectly displays the unique veined frit surface treatment perfected by Bertil Vallien. Exquisite frits of radiant blue add a fabulous colour and slight texture to the hexagonal shaped body, while the elegant ly sleek and slender spire shaped neck and rim are coloured with appealing streaks of vibrant purple. The colour was applied as frits of glass to the initial gather, and were worked into the surface of the glass as the piece was hand blown into shape. The coloured frits form wonderfully random patterns, beautifully following the contour of the form whilst adding an appealing subtle texture.
This technique, mastered by Vallien, ensures each piece in the series in totally unique. This exquisite Scandinavian art glass vase is presented in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs.
