Bertil Vallien signed Vase
« on: July 18, 2018, 03:52:26 AM »
I have a vase signed by B. Vallien, but cannot find much information about it. The base is signed Kosta Boda B. Vallien #48717 and I believe this is 4 for vase, 87 for it's year of manufacture and 17 for it's production number. Apart from this information, I cannot find if it belongs to a specific artist's collection or any further information about this piece. Can anyone help with more information?  The height of the vase is 13cm (5.2")  Many thanks, in anticipation.  Barry

Hello,

The vase is called
Wing, handblown vase design by Kosta Boda Sweden.
It gets in different heights.
Regards
Jonas

Many thanks for the information, Jonas.  This vase seems to have slipped into obscurity as I have tried countless searches on the internet without a result, other than an eBay seller in USA who is selling one.  He also, has had trouble finding a reference and doesn't know it is called "Wing". ! Bertil's own website has a gallery of images of his work, about 18 pages at 6 images to a page but there seems to be a gremlin after page 4 and you cannot progress past this.  Very frustrating! Thanks again, Jonas for your input.  Kind regards, Barry
