Large Kosta Boda Zoo Figurine

R250.00

This is by far the largest Kosta Boda figurine that I’ve come across! The Zoo series, which was created by Swedish glass artist, Bertil Vallien(1938 -) for Kosta Boda in 1976, features a series of animals, which are sculpted on the one side and flat on the other. The figurines are either described as paper weights or display pieces of art glass designed to stand in front of a window of votive candle, with the light highlighting their fantastical features! I must say, looking at the size of today’s piece, which is double that of some of the other animals that we’ve sold, I’m inclined to think the answer is the latter – this would be quite a large paperweight!

P.S. Presumably because of its size, today’s horse is one of the more expensive members of the Zoo family, with one currently for sale on Etsy for around R1000 

Dimensions: 19cm tall x 17.5cm wide x 5cm deep
