they then called it artist choice. I sold piece after 1998 that was signed art coll, no question about that. A book is just a book, i actually worked there(at/in Boda).

Hey it's not rocket sience.

Kosta and Boda merged long before 1986.

But who cares, it's a nice standard production piece either way.

Ross:

The term "The Artist Collection" did exist in 2002 as the catalogue that year had that name, as I've pointed out.  However, I agree with Daniel that it's not a big point. Artist Collection is a successful marketing strategy that grew from a few lines to all the lines. Lines that were excluded from "The Artict Collection" in 1986 were included in 2002. The term always denotes a production line. Kosta Boda used different terms for individual pieces or pieces made as part of a very limited series, as is shown in Kosta 250.

Hello everyone, I have just registered and my first post is regarding these miniatures from the artist collection. I have recently found one of these tiny treasures, mine is signed Kosta Boda, artist coll, K Engman, 89060.
It is a tiny jug in peachy orange body, clear base/foot and blue (lined) top with lip and has a small yellow handle.
Picture to follow if anyone would like to see it.
I note that it is not included in the photos of the 'Collection Artistique'  earlier in this thread.
Was wondering if anyone has any previous sales of these?
Thank you,
Regards,
Graham.

Graham,

Welcome to the GMB.

I think the piece in the photo below is the one you describe. If you're asking how much is it worth, I'm not sure, as prices are all over the place for these, at least in North America. I bought mine along with a little Scarpa for Venini bowl from the 30's for $110 (71 pounds) so hard to say how much it's worth. It's a really well done and beautiful little piece that my wife seized immediately for her room.

Thanks David,
mine is a different colourway, now attached a picture, see below.
Not too worried about the price really it came to me as a bargain.
I really like it especially the fine blue lines, not sure how they do this?

Oh now I see them together I see that they are totally different!
As for the signature I now add a photo of the base showing the engraved text.
I hope members will find this an interesting addition to this thread.
Regards,
Graham.

They are different, although you can see the family resemblance. I misread the number on the bottom of mine, I think. What I at first took to be a "0" could well be a "7," making the piece 89067, designed same year as yours, 1989, but 7 pieces later.

I'm always happy to look at good pieces, as I think most members are, so thanks for posting.

Mine is still a piece of Kosta Boda right, and the signature is right/good for it?

It is a correct piece right?  As it is the only KB piece I have here.  Like I said, when I saw was signed and they only wanted .50 cents for it -- I had to grab it -- and post it here to see if correct.

Still have not found any pieces like it - and there has to be more somewhere in Tinkernet World,,,,lol

Thanks

Just a point of clarification re the number 89067.

8 = the type of piece(eg. a vase) - unfortunately my Kosta Boda books are packed prior to my move later in the year so I can't be sure what the 8 actually represents.

90 = Year it was designed - ie. 1990

67 = is presumably the 67th design for the year but I don't know whether that is an overall design number for all types of glass, or if it is specific to 890 type items
