This vintage, copper-wheel engraved crystal vase was almost certainly made at Målerås, likely in the 1960s. The designer, who I presume was Folke Walwing, created a stunning, stylized image of a mod young woman dancing. Her outstretched arms and her flowing hair and skirt vividly show her movement. The condition is very good, with just a hint of age. There is one bubble in the thick crystal base; this is probably why the piece is unsigned. The vase is 11.5 inches tall and weighs almost 7 pounds.
Folke Walwing (1907 - 2004) was born into a glass-working family. He studied at Edward Hald and Simon Gate's engraving school in Orrefors and was first employed as a glass engraver at Målerås in 1927. He later became Art Director there until 1970 when the factory was taken over by Flygsfors and subsequently by Royal Krona. The Målerås Company is back in business, with designer Mats Jonasson at the helm.
