Did you know?

This vase is Graal glass, a popular art glass technique in the 1930s known for trapping color between layers of clear glass.

Description

Victor Emanuel “Vicke” Lindstrand’s award-winning designs are most often associated with the intricate Graal glass technique, in which different layers of glass are molded together. Lindstrand’s objects were displayed internationally, including at the 1939 New York’s World Fair, the same year as this Zebra Vase was produced and acquired by the Cleveland Museum of Art.
