Fantastic good luck and an Erik Hoglund candlestick (Boda)
« on: September 20, 2009, 04:23:58 PM »
I saw this candlestick about 18 months ago, liked it but did not at the time know who designed it or where it was made. I turned down the chance to buy it as I thought 50 quid was too much for me. I really like Erik Hoglund's work so when I realised what it was I had missed out on I felt a bit sick and have regretted not buying it ever since. Each time I have seen that seller since, he did not have the candlestick.
Until today, I could not believe my eyes, there it was and now it lives with me. I am a very happy bunny. :hiclp:

So the moral of the story is, if you like it buy it. Alternatively pray like a Nun on amphetamine and hope the glass gods smile on you like they did on me today. ;D

Thanks for helping me identify my piece. I also have a Boda Hoglund 'Primitive' candlestick. Do you know an approx date? I'm guessing late 60s/early 70s. Can post a picture if you'd like to see it.
Many thanks, Anthony

Yes please, post a picture. ;D

In terms of date the design is probably 50s or 60s, production may have been later. Does yours have a number engraved on it? They are not always on the base, sometimes they are on one side or the back just above the base. Usually something like Boda H xxxx, Boda can be in tiny writing, occasionally other variations are found like Boda H xxx Hoglund.

signatures are either Boda HXXX , HXXX/XX or just HXXX or HXXX/XX

/XX indicates the height.

Thanks both. It's been a while since I looked. But it's definitely marked Boda something. Will check it out when I get in and post some pics tomorrow all being well. Cheers.
Many thanks, Anthony

Usually but not always, this bowl (which of course is not a sculpture with or without a candlestick stuck on top) : https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/ErikHoglund#5460074453207805010

is signed Boda H98 Höglund.

Very jammy John.
(That's your nickname for today - jammyjohn.  :P I know you've had a bit more luck than just this!)

It just goes to show you're right to listen to your guts when they tell you things. :smg: :smg: :smg:
Cheers, Sue (M)
