Kosta Triangle Vase but who is the designer?
« on: May 28, 2008, 10:37:08 PM »
So I feel I am half way there  ;D

Kosta Vase, a lot of wear on the bottom, so much so I almost missed the Kosta siggie.

Forget about the numbers, if there is any, you can barely make out the Kosta mark.

It is triangle, about 10" high.  Has controlled bubbles around the center hole, spiraling up which reflects off of the 3 sides of the triangle.

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Looks more like Leerdam to me, but can't find a picture on line to show you - happy to be proved wrong though..

Oh bubbles of course you can take pictures like this, you just have to light them underneath.

taylog1 someone could have signed it Kosta, so I am opened to all suggestions at this point.

I will do a little research on Leerdam to see what I can find out.

Thanks
