A COL­LEC­TION OF ‘SHARK’S TOOTH’ VASES

Glass is cheap! It’s a real chal­lenge for me to find just one thing for £3,000. So you can get a whole set of these ‘ Shark’s Tooth’ vases for this bud­get. They show su­perb crafts­man­ship and dar­ing de­sign, and are just gor­geous.

GE­OR­GIAN STAR- CUT BOWL

This pretty bowl dates to around 1780. It’s cut in an An­glo- Ir­ish style, which was a look prac­tised on both sides of the Ir­ish Sea. Ge­or­gian cut class is a real bar­gain now be­cause younger peo­ple re­gard it as old fo­gey!

MID- CEN­TURY SWEDISH VASE

De­signed by Swedish glass ex­pert Vicke Lind­strand in 1951–1952, these ze­bra vases were formed at Kosta Boda, to­day one of the last re­main­ing fine glass companies in the West. All of the dec­o­ra­tive lines are cased within the glass.

LEFT These ze­bra vases by Vicke Lind­strand are each priced at £ 200–£ 400

ABOVE This star- cut bowl, which mea­sures just over 7 x 12cm, is some 237 years old but worth about £ 30

RIGHT ‘Shark’s Tooth’ vases de­signed by Gunnar Ny­lund for Ström­berg in 1950. The tallest mea­sures 30cm
