Large octagonal Strombergshyttan blown and cut glass vase, circa 1950s

1,050.00

This substantial octagonal vase features large cut facets in Strombergshyttan's signature blue-silver glass. Sweden, circa 1950s. Paper label on side and etched "Stromberg B988" on bottom. 8" h x 5-1/2" w x 3-3/4" d. Excellent condition.

Lindfors Glassworks was founded in 1876 and changed its name to Strombergshyttan in 1933, when Edward Stromberg, former head of Orrefors, took over the the company. He and his son, Eric, created a process to make glass with a bluish-silver color, which became the dominant characteristic of Strombergshyttan glass. 

Gerda and Asta Stromberg designed many of the pieces, along with Rune Strand and Gunnar Nylund. The Stromberg family sold the company to Orrefors in 1976 and it was closed in 1979. Although most Strombergshyttan glass is signed with a production code, the designer is never noted on the glass.
