I have seen pictures of this design before but this is the first one I have actually got hold of! I cant believe how lovely it is. Across a crowded Antiques Show I thought it was Isle of Wight. Lovely as Maltese glass is I have always thought it to be a bit in your face. Not so with this sophisticated piece. I hope you agree see the full listing under Maltese Glass.
We have been lucky enough to acquire a super example of vintage Scandanavian Glass which with the help of the Glass Message Board we have been able to identify as the work of Swedish Designer ERIK HOGLUND (1932 to 1998) created by him in the 1950s for the Boda Company. Engraved to the base is H680/165. The bowls displays the rustic folded rim features for which he was known during this period of his career. The delicate lilac colourway makes this piece especially attractive.
There are a couple of condition issues in the form of two chips on the rim. One is arrowed, the other impossible to photograph. Fortunately, because of the random bubble decoration these are hard to see when on display. The condition is otherwise good free from the usual signs of use. It stands 9.5cms high and has a rim diameter of 15.8cms.
At the moment this piece is staying in our own collection.
