Scandavinavian Free Form Oblong Bowl
Beautiful, stylish free form vintage Scandinavian glass low bowl. Possibly by Bergdala, Sweden. Bergdala was a glasshouse founded in 1889, currently associated with Skruf and Svenska Glasbruk. It may have been made by Holmegaard (Demark) as we’ve seen this unsigned form attributed to them, but Holmegaard is usually signed. Circa 1960s. Swedish modern decor gained popularity in the late 1950s and is popular again today. The Swedish glass artists are best known for their nature based design with flowing curves.
This lovely low bowl is great for table decorative centerpiece or snack bowl. Beautiful as a candle holder too. The base is polished flat with a half-moon polished pontil mark. Medium-weight bottom wear on base from years of surface contact. The glass has a couple of trapped air bubbles commonly found in hand-made glass of the era.
The oblong shaped bowl is 10½” long, 4″ at tallest point, and 7″ at widest. It weighs 2 lbs.
