Mint Condition

A sublime hand blown glass vase created by the multi-talented Vicke Lindstrand (1904-1983) the legendary Swedish designer who began his career at glass manufacturer Orrefors in 1928. This piece was made early in his tenure for the equally important Kosta (later known as Kosta Boda) sometime in the 1950s. There is an upward gradation of opalescent coloration from clear to a pleasing minty green.
