The Best of Modern Swedish Art Glass
Orrefors and Kosta 1930-1970: With Price Guide
Hardcover ISBN: 0977779807
Despite the high level of collector interest in modern Scandinavian art glass, there have been few if any publications devoted exclusively to Swedish glass made from 1930-1970, and none that have attempted to provide the collector with the background needed to fully understand the forces that determine prices in this market. The author sets forth a concise history of the two major Swedish glass producers during their peak decades, identifies those artists and designs that are of primary importance, and assigns estimated values to these works. The focus of this work is on limited production, "high end" designs, rather than on the commercial output of these firms. The text is illustrated with color photos from the author's own outstanding collection as well as a number of illustrations supplied by Bo Knutsson Art & Antiques, perhaps Sweden's leading dealer in 20th century Swedish glass.
