Optical Allusion

The term cut crystal vase brings to mind, perhaps, a Victorian era wedding present. Not in this case! Orrefors created pieces with great modernist lines and optical effects. That is why we love this tall (10" with a 7.5" diameter) object of magnifying magnificence!  UPDATE: Originally designed in Sweden 1931, we believe this is a reissue from the 1970s. From a kind reader...This is the vase "Thousand windows" by Simon Gate... "Tusen fönster" in Swedish.
