Kosta, the predecessor of Kosta Boda, produced this rare and brilliant optical paper weight or trinket holder. It is etched LS 606. Design by Vicke Lindstrand, the Kosta Artistic Director from 1950 to 1973. It weighs an astonishing 5 lbs. considering its 5 inches tall. The glass is crystal clear with a jet black ribbon running through it created using the sommerso (submerged) technique. The sides are cut with oval shapes that introduce an optical effect. There are a few very minor, nearly invisible signs of age-related wear on the sides and bottom. Made in Sweden.
