For your consideration, a classic mid-century 1960's- 1970's glass decanter designed by Gunnar Cyren for Dansk in Denmark, in excellent condition. The body of the decanter measures 12" with the teak wood stopper (marked "Denmark") extending the over-all height to 12 ½". It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The Oxford Dictionary says of the designer: Gunnar Cyrén (1931- ) was a Swedish silver, glass, and industrial designer. After completing an apprenticeship in silversmithing and a period of study at the Konstfackskolan in Stockholm Cyrén worked as a silversmith in Uppsala. In 1959 he was appointed to the Orrefors glassworks, where he mastered the new medium. He soon attracted critical attention through work exhibited at Svensk Form in Stockholm in 1961 and 1963. Working closely with the factory's glassblowers his work became widely known for its use of bright colors that were vividly seen in his Pop glasses of 1966. He was awarded the prestigious Lunning Prize in the same year. Following a period as artistic director at the company he returned to his home town of Gävle in 1970 and began designing for Dansk International, a firm with a high reputation for Scandinavian tableware. In 1973 he once more took up silversmithing, establishing a studio and shop and from 1976 worked for Orrefors on a freelance basis.
