A classic Swedish vase, hand-blown in the 1950s with the original labels in place. Very delicate glass, and beautiful deep amethyst colour. (Also available in blue )
Eneryda, of Sweden, is a glass manufacturer created by an entrepreneur in the 1950s as part of the reconstruction of the glass industry, post WW2. And with one small gap, Eneryda survived into the 1960s. The most successful decade for glassmaking in Scandinavia.
The small company hired many glass designers of the day- including John Käll, who developed a popular style in illustrative glass making.
The dark blue vase here, was produced in the 1950’s and is a lovely example of a stylised shape, which was popular in the 1960s.
The style becomes synonymous with the designs of Arthur Percy, produced for Gullaskruf glassworks. It is likely Percy worked freelance at Eneryda.
