Info Needed on Flygsfors piece
« on: June 20, 2013, 11:18:44 PM »
Stands 10 inches tall and weighs about 3 lbs. Sommerso style base and signed Flygsfors-56 & Coquille. Could not find this shape while looking around on Google. Was hoping someone here might recognize and could tell me if it was a popular production or something less common.
Thnx for looking.

Not the most typical Flygsfors "Coquille" design for a vase, so less common. The shape is very close to the pieces that Kedelv designed for Reijmyre after he left Flygsfors in 1956, if I remember correctly.  I like the design. A nice piece.
