Just acquired this lovely striped orange bowl

engraved to base kosta boda 58929 K Engman (I think that is what it says anyway)

I have googled, searched the Kosta Boda site, and checked my copy of Fire and Sea, but can't find any info about this.
Can anyone help with a date from the number inscribed on the base please  :)

It is currently looking gorgeous on my sideboard filled with apricot coloured hibiscus flowers  -  :sun:

Thanks

HI Daniel - just a small query - was the retail price referred to its original price in 1989 or current value?
thanks
