Information needed on this KOSTA peice
« on: January 25, 2010, 10:30:42 AM »
Just got this KOSTA seal/sealion , it has got the gold sticker on and also is etched on the base KOSTA and also WORLD WILDLIFE FUND LIMITED EDITION . Just wondered when they were produced and in what numbers as i have tried searching for the peice and found nothing out about the peice .

It is a stunning peice and i only paid £15 for it and wondered if i got a good deal for the peice ? Any info on the item would be greatful .

I have seen other pieces for the WWF by KOSTA designed by Paul Hoff in the 70s and 80s but i have not seen this piece and that they were limited to 8000 . So i still have no idea when this model came out and also the etching on the bottom is different to the ones that i have seen after googling kosta and world wildlife fund ?

So any idea of the year will be helpful!

Patience please, we don't all know everything and we don't all visit everyday. Sometimes it takes years to get an ID or even a piece of information.

I think they made them during the late 70's. You similar very often on swedish auctions and they dont cost much.

Hello Andy

World Wildlife Found (WWF) of the series will be added to every year with a new crystal sculpture of animal threatened by extinction.
Limit number of sculpture are on 4000 and 8000.

I got 11 pieces with a Certificate (See photos), my oldest is a Falcon from 1975

Designer from Kosta
  • Paul Hoff
  • Göran Wärff

If I got more info I’ll it post in here.

I suggest you simply email Kosta Boda, politely, I have found them most helpful in the past.
