Description

This Tulip crystal vase was designed by Jan Johansson for the Swedish glassworks Orrefors during the 1970s. Transparent vase made of lead art crystal glass. It is shaped like a tulip with six petals.

Jan Johansson was born in 1942. He came to Orrefors in 1969 after attending goldsmith training in Stockholm at the College of Arts, Crafts and Design. As an artist, he is interested in refining the optical effects of clear, sculptural crystal, as in the Street series of bartending accessories, in cut glass. Jan Johansson was actively looking for new means of expression and broadened the scope of the fugue technique.

The Swedish glassworks Orrefors takes its name from the forested village of Småland where it was founded. In the 20th century, the name Orrefors became synonymous with perfect Swedish glass. Orrefors’ reputation spread around the world in the mid-1920s; first as a result of Orrefors’ presentation at the Gothenburg exhibition in 1923, and then through participation in the groundbreaking exhibition Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 1925, where Orrefors and the artists themselves received the Grand Prix. The company grew and expanded its product lines. Currently, the company operates as Orrefors Kosta Boda AB and is the largest group of glassworks in Scandinavia.

This vase is in original vintage condition. Unfortunately, the original Orrefors sticker has not been preserved.
