This vintage, copper-wheel engraved crystal vase was made at Målerås, likely in the 1950s. The designer, Folke Walving, captured the regal stance of the archer, poised to release his arrow from his bow. The archer wears a cape and helmet, and little else. The condition is excellent, with only the hint of age. The vase is 6.5 inches tall and weighs almost 4 pounds - it is lead crystal.
Folke Walving (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 still in business, with designer Mats Jonasson at the helm.
