Skruf Farewell Engraved 5" Swedish Vase, Mother and Child Wave Goodbye to a Ship, Edenfalk 1950s Design


Bengt Edenfalk created a charming harbor scene on this handmade Swedish lead crystal vase from Skruf. Pictured is a ship in the distance - it is actually on the opposite side of the glass - and a mother holding her child’s hand as they wave goodbye. Near them is a group of fishing nets, hanging to dry on tall poles. The vase is 3.5" x 1.5" x 5" and it weighs a pound. It is signed with the artist's and company's names, and it is in very good condition.

This full lead crystal vase was engraved by spinning copper wheels, pressing a slurry of grit that cut into the surface. This a difficult technique to learn, but it's one that allows the engraver to execute varied depths and finishes to reproduce the artist's drawing. The shape of the vase is one of the most readily recognized from Skruf. Edenfalk designed it, and others, with flat surfaces on which decorative motifs could be more easily engraved. The Skruf Glassworks was founded in 1897 and is still operating today. Bengt Edenfalk was the artistic director at Skruf from 1952 - 1978.
