Scandinavian Glass / Bertil Vallien signed Vase
« Last post by Dubarry on Today at 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

Wish I did have baccarat book but very expensive.
Good point the cuts are sharp as opposed to polished off.
The catalogues I've gone through unfortunately are more drawings as opposed to detailed photos.
I suspect it is quite an early piece as as far as I am aware early glass would become unstable over time as it would have been at a time when they would be experimenting with glass mixtures I think that's right!  Does baccarat glass suffer crizzling?  Well again maybe very early pieces but unfortunately early pieces do not come up that often if at all.  I was lucky with this piece picked it up cheap but knew it was special.  I think looking at the pieces in the museum your spot on 're Czech.  I'll mail them tommoz with some pics and hopefully they will come back with some more info.  Might get them excited has me.
Glass News / Beware glass on windowsills
« Last post by Anne on Yesterday at 09:21:33 PM »
A serious house fire in Sussex, England, was caused by a glass trinket on a windowsill says fire brigade. The sun's rays focused through the glass to cause a fire on Saturday. The owner of the house, who did not wish to be named, said: "Within minutes the house was full of smoke with glass exploding."  She said her whole house was fire and smoke damaged.

Please would you add a photo showing the base as that will help more than just a written description. :)
