Bertil Vallien for
Kosta Boda Åfors

Very early and very scarce vase with applied handle, form number BV118, designed in 1963 by Bertil Vallien for Kosta Boda Åfors. Hailing from Vallien's first year as full-time designer at Åfors, it was originally available in two colours, blue and clear, and in two sizes, of which this is the smallest.

It is a a bulbous shape terminating in a conical neck, in a thick blue glass, with an applied handle to the side.

The last remaining vase bears only a label to the base stating Bertil Vallien as designer. The Boda label as pictured is absent.

This item is NOS (new old stock), and comes from the remaining stock of a Scandinavian glass shop that closed down in the early 1970s. 

Height: 120mm / 4.7"
Width or Diameter: 80mm / 3.1"
Signature or Markings: Factory label
Condition Report: Some staining inside the vase from poor storage conditions, rendered mostly invisible by the dark glass, otherwise excellent.

International deliveries are available at competitive courier rates for all items. We will combine multiple purchases, where possible, to keep shipping costs to a minimum

All of our items are delivered by a third party provider, and are electronically tracked and insured. We will use either Royal Mail / ParcelForce, My Hermes or FedEx, depending on the parcel size, its value and its destination.

Extra Delivery Charges:
Extra delivery charges may be incurred if your items are returned to us as undelivered because you were not home to take receipt of them and failed to rearrange a delivery with the courier or postal carrier. You may further be liable for any return costs levied by the courier for parcels undelivered.

14-Day Returns &
12-Month Guarantee

14-Day Returns:
For goods that are damaged or significantly not as described - please see Condition clause below. Nothing in this section limits your rights where goods are received damaged or not as described.

12-Month Guarantee
We take attributions seriously at Wilson & Coleman, and have a sizeable library of reference literature to draw upon when it comes to describing what we sell.

If you see an item with a definitive attribution you know that we're as certain as we can be. If we've exhausted all the options, and there remains a small element of doubt, we will refer to the item as 'after' the designer or manufacturer, or append '(attrib.)' to their name.

But no one is infallible, and even the best reference sources can contain mistakes. To this end, we offer a twelve month full money-back guarantee for any items discovered to be by a manufacturer or designer other than that stated. The refund will include your original postage costs and costs you incur when returning it. The item must be received by us in the condition by which it was sold.

To qualify, you must have purchased an item with a definitive attribution within the last 12 months, and you will be required to provide written evidence that our information is incorrect from a reputable source, such as a specialist auction house or authoratitive dealer, or to direct us to a printed source, such as a respected book on the subject.

All eligible items are marked with a gold 12-Month shield on the sales page.
