Rare Vintage 1950s Flygsfors Glass Bowl Paul Kedelv Signed 1954


Brand Etsy

This is a small bowl signed Flygsfors 54 and possibly Kedelv - the signature is difficult to make out but definitely starts with a K. The piece is made of blue cased glass that is decorated with white striping around its exterior. Kedelv worked at Flygsfors from 1949 until 1956 and was responsible for designing the Coquille line, which was inspired by shell shapes - from 1956 until 1977 he worked at the Reijmyre glass factory. The bowl measures 5 3/4 by 6, slightly out of the round - it weighs 1 lb and 13 oz, heavy for its size. It is in very good condition with no chips or cracks - some scratching to the underside from surface contact, as might be expected from a piece of this age.
This is a rather rare piece - I couldnt find another like it and very desirable with the supposed Kedelv signature. Wonderful addition to a Scandinavian glass collection!
