This clear glass vase was designed in 1954 by Nils Landberg and made in 1960 by Aktiebolaget Orrefors Glasbruk of Sweden.

The vase is made of clear glass flashed with translucent olive green glass.

Since the end of World War II, the national design organisations of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark have collaborated with joint exhibitions and prizes to promote modern functional design. This resulted in a characteristic 'Scandinavian Style' which was a major influence on world taste.
