I recently purchased this Kosta Boda piece and have not found anything like it online or in my books. It has the Kosta Boda sticker as well as etched Kosta signature. There is also the number 57595 which to my understanding means bowl made in this correct?
I cannot make out the artist signature...more like, cannot find any Kosta artists with this name. Help please!

Hi Val

Just some additional info on this piece.  It's part of a series called 'Zelda', was designed in 1975, and was sold through at least 1986.

Thee are quite a few different shapes in the Zelda range (Pages 276/7 Kosta Boda book of glass) here's a couple I have which aren't signed but both have Boda labels.
