This perfect, petite example of engraved vintage crystal comes from the fourth generation of glass carvers in the Kjellander family of Sweden. Four generations trained and worked at Kosta, from 1825 to 1924: Lars 1799, Erik 1830-1916, Lars Johan, 1868-1931, and his two sons, Åke, 1903-1989, and Nils, 1907-1991. In 1924, the Kjellanders opened their own workshop in Vetlanda. The brothers, Åke and Nils, continued their work there until 1983. This beautiful vase, etched with incomparable skill, evokes the folkloric aesthetic that seems never to go out of style. Note how masterfully the artist gave the lady's hair a dark color by polishing the engraved cut.
The vase is small, 2.75" x 2" x 3", and it weighs less than a pound. It would make a stunning decor piece on a sunny windowsill, in a sparkly china cabinet, on a man's desk, or set among the pretty things on a dresser or shelf. They certainly aren't making them like this anymore.
