Two decidedly odd crystal horses...
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:45:56 PM »
Two large and heavy cast glass "horses", from a mixed batch of Scandinavian glass. They're modelled to look like they're made of random components like... houses, balusters, boxes and rolled carpets.

No signature, no label, no luck in trying to find a reference for them. They have a hint of Boda about them, but I can't pin down anything similar.

Anyone seen them before?

The eBay seller also did a video, randomly, that preserved the images of the signature -

The design is 'Sleipner' (mythical 8-legged horse... even though this hoses is somewhat leg-less), form number BV 9645

Hoses? I think I meant 'horse'.
