This is a lovely, brilliant clear crystal tall cylindrical vase with 7 diagonally cut 'V' shaped grooves, at various angles, around the lower 2/3 of the body. The design was produced by Olle Alberius (sometimes seen spelled 'Arberius') for Orrefors. The bottom of the piece is signed, "Orrefors A 4262.211", which stands for the Company, the artist and the model.
This design dates from the 1970's and is an uncommon, very hard-to-find style/pattern. The vertical walls of the vase is 3/8" thick and this piece measures an impressive 8 3/4" tall and 2 7/8" wide.
This piece retains its original red Orrefors label and is in excellent condition with no chips, hard water stains, cracks, or significant scratches. There is very minor wear on the bottom where it has sat and a couple of small bubbles deep in the glass which occurred during manufacture - one can be seen in photo 6. This is a slender, impressive and substantial piece that would add to any decor or collection.
