This listing also appears on the iNVISeDGE website so it can be cancelled at any time. A VINTAGE Kosta vase engraved to the base (Kosta SS 170) by Mona Morales-Schildt.
SS is the Kosta designer code for Mona Morales-Schildt hand-cut glass/crystal pieces. This piece was designed in the late 1950's and forms part of the Ventana series (window in Italian) which she is best known for. This is a rare piece of history by a highly-esteemed artist and there's something about vintage Kosta (Boda) I can't go past.The piece itself is intriguing. Two faces are flat but rounded. Morales-Schildt designs are interesting in that they're quite restrained and seemingly simple but there's a complexity in the way light refracts within the crystal and on the surfaces of the piece. The complex refraction becomes the ornateness of the design and the design itself needs to be simple for the best effect. The craftsmanship and eye for detail here is second to none. At the time this was ground-breaking stuff- today it still gets noticed. This is a stand-alone piece- it doesn't need anything around it to prop it up and for that reason (and the complexity of the work involved) it fetches significantly more than a lot of mid-century glass. Sometimes less really is more. In Australia, this should be priced at a lot more.
I have never seen one on offer in Australia and I visit the mid-century design shops in Sydney and Melbourne when I'm there. The work of Mona Morales-Schildt is highly regarded and I believe will only continue to increase in value as you get to enjoy it.The investment appeal is a no-brainer. I've been following values for 10 years and these have appreciated in value noticeably- there are so few around as well. At the time of writing I could only 2 or 3 for sale WORLDWIDE. This piece is one to be passed from one generation to the next.
The design captivates just as much today as it ever has. More photos of the piece on offer are also given on our website. Read my 1100+ feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture / design SALES).
