Kosta Boda -- Signed ???
« on: June 04, 2011, 07:56:44 PM »
 :hi: There:

Bought this about an hour ago for Only .50 cents.  Mind you, it is small -- but it also has a plastic label on it (so I know it is Kosta Boda) -- but it is also signed on the bottom.  Looks like:

Josha Boda ????
and Call ????
__ Eng___ ???
then 89061

The number is all I am really sure what it says.  Color is yellowish and red with kinda a purple handle.  Kinda a *weird color combo*  :huh2:

Any info on it?  Age?  Maker?  What the bottom does say?  What is the glass effect called?  A little lost on this piece, as this is my First Kosta Boda piece here -- but for .50 cents, I guess it is worth it.  Is it rare, or not??  Or anything worthy at all?

Thanks for any help.   :kissy:

from the collection artistique - miniature versions of the larger vases, late eighties through nineties.  Eng is Eva Englund I think, 89 would be the year.

Thanks for some names to try here.  I just found this one on Fleabay HERE with a signature......does that Signature *look* like mine ???  I only point to this for the Signature --as the items are different.

I can't tell by the writing, as both are Sloppy.... :pb:



Also as Ivo said *Miniature* is correct.  I forgot to take the size of it -- but in the mean time, I did take a pic of the size of it.....it is small  :spls:

It is indeed Kjell Engman and I think it's one of the "Bon Bon" series.  "Art. Coll." is the Artist Collection, Kosta Boda's more artistic line. The numbers are code:  8 = jug; 90 = year of design (1990).

Nice find, and ridiculously good buy for that money.

Congrats.

Thanks Everyone!!   :kissy: :kissy:

I am happy with this little item with the signature too.   Have not found a larger version of this (if this is a Miniature of the larger version??) .......or just a miniature, period ?? .  I will keep looking now with the other info that you have given me to see what I can find.

Yup, get price for it.  There was a *community garage sale* in our community this weekend.  I only went to a couple about 1/2 block away from my home.  This is were I found this little treasure.

Hi Rose pretty sure Greg is right Kjell Engman and Josha Boda Lol is Kosta boda note the 'K' in Kosta and the first letter of the signature? 'K'
Chris :sun:


I thought it might have said Kosta Boda on the bottom --------- BUT there was just no way that looked like a *K* to me.....neither of them looked like a *K* as in Kosta or in *K* in the name Kjell....just did not look like a *K* at all

 :thud: Thought it looked more like Josha  :spls2: :24: :pb:

Thanks -- Question here:  I am not finding on the Net very many examples of this (none) or even any other one in the Artist Collection of different types.  Nor am I finding many Mini ones at all.  Can anyone find some examples for me -- and I am not having any luck.

Are these mini examples *based* upon a real large piece?  As I am not finding any large pieces like this either.... :thud:

As for the Mini like might, since I can not find any examples of this piece -- What would one expect a price to be around?  Only being that I can not find any examples, and this is the first piece of Kosta Boda I have (and signed)

Help  :help: Thanks  :kissy:

I'm not sure it would be known as a miniature, just one of a series that came in a variety of sizes.  I know enough about Engman to know that he's been very prolific, but not enough to know how much this piece would be worth. Prices for Engman are highly variable, as you've no doubt noticed. I'm not sure how "exclusive" the Artist Collection was at this time.
