I've just bought a pair of these this morning.http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/misc895.jpg
and have a couple of questions to ask. They are both marked "Kosta 98225 Engman."
I know from Ivo's A-Z that these were designed by Kjell Engman for Kosta and that he joined Kosta in 1978. Googling designs by Engman haven't brought up similar looking pieces.
Firstly, what are they? I assumed that because they were bought as a pair, then they might be bookends. They are certainly heavy enough, each weighing 1Â¾kg.
Secondly, according to the information given, if I've understood it correctly, five digit codes have been used since the 1970s and that the last two digits indicate the year of design. So, what year could that be given that the code is 98225
and Engman joined Kosta in '78?
Last of all, why on earth did I buy them? :roll:
