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.
