Designed by Nils Landberg, this vase captures an old sailing vessel on the high seas. It is a very old example of Swedish art glass, and it's a gem! It takes many hands to make a piece like this, and the techniques are not commonly used today. The vase is blown, polished, and engraved all by hand - remarkable.
Nils Landberg was born in 1907 and died in 1991. He studied at the Handicraft Society School in Gothenburg, and began his career at Orrefors Glassworks in 1925, initially as an engraver and from 1936 as a designer. He debuted his engraved glass at the Paris Exhibition in 1937, participated in the World Exhibition in New York in 1939, and won the gold medal at the 1957 Milan Triennale. Landberg is best known to the public for his thin wall elegant tableware and art glass. His most famous designs are "Tulip" and "Dusk." He worked at Orrefors until 1972.
This little vase is a perfect size for display on a shelf or desk, it is 3" wide across the rim and 4" tall, and it weighs a pound. The style code 1429 tells me it was designed in 1935, and the production date code A2 means that this particular vase was made in 1936. This vase was engraved by Axel Nordgren, who worked at Orrefors from 1927 to 1972. It is in exceptionally good condition for 88-year-old glass.
