Stunning Ravenna

Data: Height 17 cm, width 22 cm. Signed: "Orrefors, Ravenna No 999, Sven Palmqvist. There is a small defect close to the rim.


The piece. This huge "double" Ravenna speaks for itself, and you are probably tired of listening to somebody, one who is not even an art major, describing his stuff (sorry, artifacts). I have been extremely lucky to be able to acquire these four great Ravennas, and to try to go "one better" and show even more exuberance about this piece would simply be beyond my vocabulary and show me off as an even greater admirer of Swedish art glass than I would like to be seen as. When it came to object numbers like 999, etc. Orrefors often took an old "ämne"/"cartridge" and this could well be an example of this practice.
