Striking sommerso style vintage vase designed by Gunnar Nylund/Asta Strömberg for Strombergshyttan Glass c.1950's. Beautifully elegant tear-drop form. Amethyst coloured glass encased in clear glass. Ground pontil mark to base. The vase measures 29.5 cm in height.
Strombergshyttan was founded in 1876 as the Lindfors glassworks until 1933 when Edward Stromberg left Orrefors and leased the company. Together with his son Eric, they developed their characteristic glass with an ice-blue/silver hue. His son Eric bought the company in 1945, investing heavily to modernise the company. The company remained in the Stromberg family until 1976, when it was sold to Orrefors following a severe fire in 1973 which had left the glassworks in financial problems. Orrefors closed the Strombergshyttan glassworks in 1979.
