I found a vase about a year ago that was recently identified by Glass Message Board member px of Finland as being a "Boda Bukett by Rolf Sinnemark, Sweden from somewhere around 70-80's". I've found information about Rolf Sinnemark and, of course Boda, in both my Scandinavian Glass books and on-line but I cannot find anything about the actual Boda Bukett piece itself.
The piece is shaped like a large Hyacinth or bulb forcing vase but I don't know if that is actually what its use is supposed to be. From the base the glass tapers in slightly then widens to a shoulder before tapering back in approximately half way up the body. There is then a waisted section with a ring of 12 round buttons or dots. Above the ring of buttons the vase widens again into a symmetrical series of 12 reeded / fluted panels aligned with the buttons below that form the upper body and crimped style rim of the vase. The vase measures 6-7/8" tall, 5" in diameter at rim and 5" in diameter at base. The smallest interior measurement is 2-1/2" in diameter.
I would truly appreciate any information about this piece; purpose, more exact date, book value etc. I am also very interested in any websites or the titles of any books which describe the vase.
Thank you for your help.
