Kosta Bowl, signature/dating help needed.
« on: September 04, 2010, 01:49:13 AM »
Hi all.

I have this lovely Kosta bowl, it is signed Kosta WH 5569. It measures 8 5/8" in diameter and is smoke grey in color.
Would anyone be able to help me with artist/date info? I've not been able to find anything on my own.

Possible Wärff.

But it doesn't seem  ready, the bottom looks unpolished.

Another worry is the 4 digit numbering.  I have only ever seen 5 digit codes and this vase looks quite modern.  I suggest you email Kosta Boda USA and ask if someone recognises it.  They have been very helpful with identifying two pieces that were not in the three Kosta Boda books I have.  I actually asked Sweden and they passed me on to the USA.

Look at older pieces and you will find plenty 4 digit numbers. Some times you find a 0 before ie 01234, these often only have Kosta in front, no designer initials and those were sale pieces. Things that were sold out.
