SOLD Big retro modern sommerso vase in cobalt and green.

This eye-catching heavy vase was designed by famous Swedish artist Bo Borgstrom for Aseda Glasbruk (Sweden) in the 1960s.
The shape of this vase is rare as most found in this blue and green sommerso combination are hooped or long and slender.  It's geometric waisted modernist shape is both beautiful and useful.
Blown from mold with heat finished rims.  The green and blue glass were blown out of the mold together, this technique is called sommerso. 
It's geometric waisted modernist shape is both beautiful and useful. Easy hand grip at the waist, and the waist also helps hold the stems in arrangement.
Big vase measures 8.75" tall with a 4.5" wide mouth.  Weighs 2.75 lbs.  In excellent condition with a semi-solid band of bottom-wear on unseen base (caused by years and years of sitting on a surface and expected on vintage glass)
