Kosta Boda Smokey Amber Crystal Art Deco Vase Designed by Elis Berg - image 1 of 7

The glassworks in Kosta was founded in 1742. The name was created from the surnames of the founders, Generals Koskull and Staël von Holstein. Kosta’s location, in the heart of the dense forests in the Swedish province of Småland, was chosen so that the glassworks could provide both Stockholm and Karlskrona with glass. Important roads crossed here, and there was also an unlimited supply of wood to heat the furnaces.

This gorgeous Art Deco Vase in smokey amber crystal was designed in 1935 by Elis Berg (1893-1954). Elis Berg worked for the Kosta Glassworks from 1919-1950. His early pieces were just signed with the letter "B" and the model number. In later years "Kosta" was often added as well as the year of production to the more important pieces. This wonderful vase has cut vertical panels on the exterior with a swirl interior creating an optic window pane effect. A heavy piece it measures 1/4" in thickness at the top edge. The vase measures 8 1/4 in height, 7" across the top and 3 3/4" across the base. It is clearly etched on the base "B 525 Kosta". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint with wear marks on the underside.
