Kjellander 1940s Naked Woman Holding a Basket of Pineapples, Engraved Swedish Lead Crystal Vase


This beautiful vintage crystal vase, executed with incomparable skill, is an exemplar for engraved depictions the human form. Note how masterfully the artist gave the woman such well-defined musculature and her basket such finely detailed fruit. The vase is medium-sized, 5.25" x 4" x 8", and it weighs 2.5 pounds. It is a stunning show piece, worthy of a museum, certain to add drama and sparkle to a special spot in your home.

This magnificent engraved vase comes from the Kjellander Workshop of Sweden. The Kjellander brothers, Nils and Åke, were fourth generation engravers. Their father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all began as engravers at Kosta Glassworks, long before the Boda merger. The Kjellanders did not make glass, but they could sure engrave it. The brothers, along with their father, Lars Johan, opened up their own shop in 1924 and stayed in business until 1983.
