This gorgeous KOSTA BODA vase was hand formed by VICKE LINDSTRAND, circa 1956-1959. The bottom is etched KOSTA LH 1482, It is 9 3/4" tall and has a lovely shape. There is a suspended bubble in the base. The glass is very heavy weighing nearly 2 1/2" lb. When I purchased this vase it was called an "orchid vase". Kosta Boda is a Swedish company founded in 1742 and is one of the world's leading manufacturers of glassware. This vase is in mint condition. If you are intrigued by the unusual, you will love this outstanding vase.
