Skruf Edenfalk Sailor on Duty, Sailor on Leave, Engraved Swedish Crystal Vase, 1970s

$99.00

Bengt Edenfalk designed this one-of-a-kind vase for Skruf, likely in the 1970's. The ovoid form is decorated with an abstract split image. On one side is a sailor in uniform with a ship in the background, and on the other side is the same person, dressed for a night out, with stars in the sky. The gender(s) of the figure are ambiguous, making this a unique gift for a wide variety of people.

The vase is about 6 inches tall, and it weighs 3 pounds. It is engraved by hand, and signed on its base with the company and artist's names.

Skruf was founded in 1897 by a former manager from Johansfors Glassworks. Originally, the company produced mainly simple drinking glasses and preserve jars. From 1910 onwards, they produced an extensive line of tableware. Most pieces were designed by Magni Magnusson, until 1953, when Bengt Edenfalk joined Skruf as the chief designer. While at Skruf, Edenfalk developed the famous Thalatta technique, which is similar to the Ariel technique, but more difficult to master because the design is applied while the glass is hot. Edenfalk left Skruf in 1978 to work for Kosta. Other designers who worked at Skruf are Lars Hellsten and Ingegerd Råman.
