Edvard Hald Graal bowl for Orrefors, 1926
« on: June 07, 2010, 09:09:53 PM »
Hi,

yesterday I bought this stunning bowl, signed on the base.
Graal / Orrefors 1926 / KB 3035 Hald.

I don't have any clue about scandinavian glass, but I like it :)

Can anyone tell me something about the design?

Overall in good condition.
Only too bad that the black applied foot has 2 cracks.

What do you think about the value of a damaged piece?

Thanks for all!  :)

 I think this is a very rare "heartbeat" item. WOW!

You would need to get this appraised by a serious auction house to get an idea of value.

Kokomo:

My jaw fell open at this one. Spectacular! The year on it, 1926, is supported by the numbering, and KB means that the work was done by Knut Bergqvist following a design by Edward Hald. You can't get more iconic than that. Yes, do need a major auction house for an accurate evaluation of this one. I still dream, one day....

Congratulations.

Some of Hald's graal works were repeated for many years - in particular the fish bowls (mainly green) and the spiral design (usually blue/black or blue/pale yellow). However, so far as I know this does not apply to this design. Useful that JP has found a reference, because it is extremely rare. (Which could be another way of saying "I've never seen one before!" It would be interesting to know what Bill Geary's view is.

Thanks for your replies :)

There was an ad in online marketplace in Germany, not ebay.
I drove a long way to pick up the bowl.
First I wanted to give her 100 Euros for it.
But she did not say anything about the damage on the telephone.
Now I got the bowl and a small Poli sommerso vase for 40 Euros. :)

She has no clue about glass. The bowl was from her grandma from Sweden...

Can you advise some books of scandinavian art glass?

Thank you  :)

Let me join in the chorus - WOW!

As for an appraisal, let me recommend Helena Smedberg at the Bukowski Auktionhouse in Stockholm.
I think their address is www.bukoskis.se

This auction house holds two auctions each year called Moderna and the Swedish glass offered for sale is spectacular.

Their reputation with me is superb as we have had dealings since 1985.

As an aside, the fish graal in green, white and purple by Edward Hald was produced in quantities of over 20,000.

It's good to have Bill's confirmation. Also his advice about http://www.bukowskis.se/

It will be very interesting to learn what they have to say about it.

As to valuation - well, I think you may have quite a nice profit on your outlay!  :rn:
