Help with Kosta sig please.
« on: May 27, 2006, 03:41:44 PM »
Hi,
I purchased this Kosta Bowl today which had the Kosta sig plus some initials which are new to me, I wonder if someone out there can identify them for me please. The bowl or ashtray measures 14cms by 13cms and is a little over 4cms tall, good all round condition but lots of scratches on base so probably used as an ashtray.
Much obliged as always.

I have seen an identical bowl on UK Ebay today (from Denmark) discribed as being Holmegaard :roll:
Cheers,

Thanks, but does the LH mean anything, ie. Is it a designers monogram?

Bryn,

LH means (I am told) designed by Lindstrand and handformed (rather than a mould I presume).

Designed around 1958 59 - I don't know how long in production

Hi,
Yes, of course, it could be that. However I've just been busy searching through the message board archives as i thought the initials were EH not LH and I noticed a Kosta bowl purchased by Max on Ebay some time ago that was designed by Erik Hogland.  The piece is not disimilar in basic design.  :mrgreen:
But your theory is most probably the correct one, thanks.
