Hand engraved signature & numbering underneath the base "Kosta LH1435/27", originally shown in the 1958-59 Kosta production catalogue. Unusual & very collectible Lindstrand piece! Legendary Swedish designer Vicke Lindstrand began his career at glass manufacturers Orrefors in 1928, were he worked independently alongside Edward Hald and Simon Gate. He made his designer debut at the 1930 Stockholm World Fair, where he presented twelve glass vases with enamel decor in exotic patterns. For these, he received lots of attention from international design publications. Lindstrand added new artistic dimensions to the already famous Orrefors glass with his unique designs and revitalization of the firm's classic forms and techniques. During his time at Orrefors he worked on engraved glass and Graal vases, and together with sculptor Edvin Öhrström he developed the new Ariel technique. Orrefors could not afford to keep Lindstrand during the war and between 1943 and 1950 he became creative leader at Uppsala Ekeby, where he designed many different stoneware objects ranging from pots to figural sculptures. After this brief time as ceramics designer he went back to glass at Kosta in the 1950´s, now as a mature artist. He was the dominant artist at the factory and made numerous classic vases there. At Kosta, Lindstrand started to use more colours in his glass designs. From this period he produced iconic designs such as "Trees in the Fog" and "Autumn". Lindstrand was also a skilled textile and graphic designer and kept on working as a painter throughout his long and prosperous career.
