Purple Prose

Let's compare and contrast...shall we? The top cylindrical vase is Scandinavian by Stromberg and the bottom is American by Wayne Husted for Blenko. Beyond the Lilac color, there are certain similarities to these two vessels. Both are heavily weighted and clear bottomed. Both are cut and polished at the top. Both are etched or signed, from the late 50s.
Top 12"
Bottom 13.5"
