Pukeberg Glass ‘Solifleur’ vase made in Sweden 1970s
Kosta Boda ‘Igloo’ candle holders made in Sweden 1970s
More of my Nordic glass collection – but now from the 70s. The single stem vase is known as ‘Solifleur’ [although a French term] and the candle holders are called ‘Igloo”. Both are made of chunky glass, so reminiscent of the 70s.
The vase was designed by Uno Westerberg for Pukeberg Glass, and the candle holders were designed by Bengt Edenfalk for Kosta Boda. Pukeberg Glass is well known for their monumental glass pieces – and this vase is kind of the pinnacle of their chunky 70s look. Meanwhile, Kosta Boda was going all icy in the 70s, with many bowls, figurines and candle holders having a frozen-water-captured-in-glass theme.
And as is my wont – the candles are by Ikea. All the pieces are in excellent as-new condition.
