your opinion please
« on: July 14, 2008, 09:22:29 PM »
Hi all,

may I ask if you could give me your opinion of this in the link?

http://www.the-saleroom.com/Catalogues/Item.aspx?itemId=5876780

Its in an auction in England, I usually concentrate on Murano, but Kosta has been interesting as well.

many thanks

I'm not sure what exactly the question is, but this looks like a genuine Vicke Lindstrand piece, although I've seen it in red more than in green. It's pictured in Friedman, p.75 as a "Fan" sculpture worth $150-$200, and in Pina's Fire and Sea, p. 118, at $400-$500. Friedman's estimate seems more realistic to me. There's also one listed currently on eBay, 360068878150. Nice piece. Good luck.

Well, unfortunately I was unsuccessful. The vase went for £125. ouch!

More surprising was an Okra iridescent perfume bottle that went for £75.

It wasn't a total loss I did get the Seguso vase I wanted.

Do you mean surprising low or surprising high? :)

I would have thought £75 was quite reasonable for an Okra scent bottle. Most studio glass is currently very undervalued on the secondary market.

I remember a few years back one of Richards perfume bottles fetching about £600.
