Help with Kosta Items Needed--Need ages and bowl "patte
« on: July 23, 2005, 05:35:48 PM »
hi All
First time posting-was directed here by PGP Ebay board member.

I also will be submitting a question re: Bohemiam glass-next time-do I combine any questions-or do separate posts??

I have 2 Kosta items-both marked-but still need info.

Bowl is by Ehrner-#58028-would love to know age and name for this line/style.Value?

Sculpture is 8"x5"x1"  signed Kosta 93178 mj?-I believe this to be by mats Jonassons-when he was with Kosta-would like to verify this-and determine value.

The second item, with the swans, certainly looks like Mats Jonasson.  He worked for Kosta from 1969-75, so that gives you a timeframe.

As to value, probably the best thing to do is watch Ebay.  Mats Jonasson pieces turn up regularly, so search these for Kosta pieces - that'd be my advice.

Here's another piece of advice too..  :wink:  Buy Ivo Haanstras book:  Glass Fact File A-Z, published by Millers, ISBN 1 84000 429 0.  It's an invaluable book and inexpensive to buy.   :D

Thanks Max!!  I do watch his stuff on Ebay--but have not seen one like this! I too believe it is his--just needed some confirmation.

Kosta Bowl
« Reply #3 on: May 14, 2006, 06:48:09 AM »
The bowl, designed by Anna Ehrner was called "Kosta Olivia".
This bowl came in two sizes: one 3 1/8" and one 4 3/8" in height

They appear in the Kosta 1980's catalog.

Appearing in the same catalog is the engraved work by Mats Jonasson under the number 93178.
This is the two swans.
