Scandinavian Glass / Re: Kosta Boda - Bertil Vallien help

Me neither but a quick google throws up a few pieces signed Boda Atelje. 67 may not refer to a date, it could be a pattern number.

Scratching my head again, hit another brick wall with this one.

15cm tall, cut rim, moulded base, I don't think it is from Aseda.

Any ideas?

Which begs the question, why wasn't it (along with other trial/experimental colourways) produced wide scale?  What would have influenced the decision?

As Sue says, it was primarily down to what sold well, the second consideration was probably cost of production. If it was not well received at the time it would not have lasted long.

Lighting can make a huge difference Anne, try in different places or with a light underneath, there is a chance it may look good and it would save painting your living room black.  ;D

Glass / Re: Is this a Whitefriars vase?

A moulded base and cut rim can be found on many a Whitefriars vase, coffins and nailheads are the first two designs that spring to mind.

I have run out of steam on this one so looking for assistance.

12.5cm tall, cut rim and moulded base, the pattern repeats on all four faces. Reminiscent of designs by Pentti Sarpaneva like this one
maybe inspired by...

British & Irish Glass / How to best display an item that needs light
« Last post by Carolyn Preston on June 20, 2016, 11:33:25 PM »
Mod: In a thread about an IoW vase, Sue said:
My Seaward is only vibrant in sunshine. Otherwise, it's a fairly dark thing.
prompting ...

Which begs the question...

How do you best display something that requires light to show it to its best advantage. My darling sister purchased me a piece that I am sure that would look best in front of a window. But given that the only window in my living room is a sliding patio door, it's a little difficult.

Now let me just see if I have a picture of it...
