1940s Swedish Glass Vase with Nude Woman Dancing on Moonbeams, Johansfors Glassworks, Copper Wheel Engraved

$135.20 $169.00

Made at Johansfors Glassworks, in the "Crystal Kingdom" of Sweden, this stunning vase was engraved by pressing the glass against various spinning copper wheels. It is a perfect size for display or flowers - 4" in diameter and 6" tall - and it weighs 2 pounds. I can't tell you much about the designer or engraver; pieces from this era at Johansfors only had a sticker to mark the maker. Judging from the style, I estimate it was made in the late 40s or early 50s.

Johansfors Glasbruk was a Swedish glass maker founded in 1891. The current factory with glassblowing and glass furnaces was built in 1955 at the same place where it began in 1891. It was bought by Magnor Glassverk in 1997 after having had financial problems. Sadly, the factory closed in 2014.

Fun fact: my mother's paternal grandfather came from the town of Johansfors!
