70's crystal ??? Sven Palmqvist ?
« on: March 10, 2011, 06:16:37 PM »
Can someone identify this piece of crystal ???

Measures approximateley 22 x 12 x 6 cm and its something like 4-5 kg in weight. Unfortunately not signed...

Reminds me of some work by Sven Palmqvist for Orrefors back in the early 70's, (The magic eye)

Maybe it's nothing special, but I like it, and it was only 11 USD. A real bargaiin.

I haven't a clue who designed it but it's very attractive. And for $11.00? I can't park around here for that amount. I'd expect it to be signed if it were by Palmqvist. Daniel or Bill are your best bets for this one.

Thanks !!!  I will keep on investigating. What a shame there's no sticker or signature on it but still... it was a puchase couldn't resist.

(Took a look at your Shark tooth pieces in on your picasa-link. Love these pieces. I've got 9 of them myself in different sizes.)

You have nine?  I haven't even seen that many. How many sizes are there? I know there are some taller ones, but they always seem to go for a very high price, and I'm pretty cheap.
