This ‘Bamboo‘ vase was designed by Bo Borgström for Swedish glass factory Åseda Glasbruk, presumably sometime during the 1960s, which is when Borgström joined the company. It’s a very simple design, but that’s what Scandinavian design is all about, isn’t it? It’ also not massive, kind of an oversized bud vase – you could probably put three or four stems in it, but definitely not a big bunch of flowers. Although it’s so attractive just as it is, I don’t even think it needs flowers!
P.S. these vases normally sell for around $40 (R590), but can go for as much as $80 (R1100). Also note that for the most part the vase is in good condition, but there is a small scratch in the glass (see photos)
Dimensions: 24.5cm tall x 5.5cm in diameter
