Vintage 1930s Ystad Metall Brass Vase Machine Age Art Deco Swedish Modern Design:
HERE’S A RARE ORIGINAL VINTAGE 1930S ART DECO / MACHINE AGE BRASS ”BALL & CYLINDER” VASE PRODUCED BY YSTAD METALL OF SWEDEN!
Measuring eight inches (8”) in height, three and an eighth inches (3 1/8”) inches across the top at its widest point, and two and a half inches (2 ½”) in diameter across the base, this rare original vintage nineteen thirties modernist brass vase is made from four segments that were hand-soldered to form the complete vase. To this end, the ball-shaped body is actually two sections hand-soldered at its midpoint, and then the top and base are separate segments that were hand-soldered to the body.
This Machine Age / Art Deco brass vase displays very clean and pure geometric lines, from the domed circular base to the spherical ball-shaped body to the flared tubular top – essentially a bold geometric form made up of conical cylinders and circles!
The vase is marked "THE-KONST YSTAD MADE IN SWEDEN" (see photos above).
Ystad Metall was a company located in Ystad, Sweden, that employed many important designers during the 1920s through the 1960s. Perhaps the most prolific Ystad Metall designer was Ivar Alenius-Bjork, whose more significant designs were created during the 1930s. Several of Alenius-Bjork’s designs for Ystad Metall can be seen in the book “Swedish Arts And Crafts: Swedish Modern – A Movement Towards Sanity In Design.” This book was published in conjunction with the 1939 New York World’s Fair where Ystad Metall displayed a wide selection of their modern brass and pewter objects.
Condition: This vase is in good toward very good and clean condition with its original patina. There is some variation to the patina as well as several small markings and minor surface scratches. And there are three (3) small shallow dents about midway on the spherical body. Overall, this is still a decent/very decent example of original vintage 1930s Scandinavian Functionalism / Swedish Machine Age / Art Deco Modernism.
