Svaja Paperweight
« on: January 26, 2013, 03:07:54 PM »
A large Svaja paperweight - coral -with label and signed Eckstrand? - label to base with price 125.00 - I bought quite cheap, a little googling told me this is still in production along with a myriad of other Svaja pieces. I like it, it's well executed. Don't know much about or who the designer was.

Mark Eckstrand was a glassmaker in the US, in the Pacific Northwest. He may still be working.
