This listing price is for the RED & WHITE STRIPED ZEBRA VASE in the middle of the group photo only. This vase SOLD through iNVISeDGE in 2012 for AU $395. Today in 2019 I’d price the exact piece at AU $440 but most likely more. I’d have to research values more if I got another one.
Background Info and Provenance
Vicke Lindstrand HAND-MADE vase that’s engraved to the base Kosta LH115. This design is commonly called the Zebra vase. They were released in about 1952 and have become hugely successful. Lindstrand went through a phase where he experimented with lines and cross-hatching and these designs are highly sought-after today. What creates a hit is the intermingling of lines from the back and front.
Today Vicke Lindstrand’s work is some of the most highly collectable mid-century glass in the world. His designs may initially seem simple but despite being understated they make you do a double-take and this is what has caused his success.
HAND-MADE art that’s European and over 50 years old is virtually never found in Australia. This is the first Kosta item like this I’ve seen here. These Zebra vases are a solid investment worldwide- I’ve seen this exact vase currently priced at AU $685 in America and there’s a lot more of them in America than in Australia.
This signed Kosta piece is one to be passed from one generation to the next. Kosta Boda is probably the most successful glassworks ever and this Kosta piece is way before Kosta and Boda amalgamated. This design captivates just as much today as it did back then. Instead of adding to global pollution consider buying vintage- there are very few better ways you can invest in your home and in our environment.
PICK-UP . . . from 30 or 40 minutes North of BRISBANE city is accepted but postage is preferred as my home is hard to find. Because of this I will nominate a friend or family member for you to collect the item from if you need collection. Pick-up in person must be worked out prior to purchase- thank you. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE is offered internationally. All our Decorative Arts pieces are delivered through AUSTRALIA POST. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE ESTIMATES. . . . ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To BRISBANE- most of our pieces cost $15 - $18 to send. . . To SYDNEY or MELBOURNE- Small Vase- around $20 - $23, Medium Vase- around $20 - $25, Large Vase- around $24 - $30. Let us know if you need an EXACT COST for postage prior to purchase. The above postage estimates include $2.95 for a signature on delivery. . . INSURANCE against being lost or broken in transit up to the value of $200 is included in the estimates above. If your vase is cheaper or more expensive than $200 this will effect your postage fee slightly. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A BOXING FEE of $3.00 is included in the fee above to cover the cost of searching for and storing used packing materials. With the millions of cardboard boxes that end up as landfill every year we don’t believe in supporting the manufacture of boxes for post. Instead of buying new boxes and packing materials and passing this cost onto our customers we spend considerable time sourcing used boxes and then fashioning boxes to fit each item. We do the same for bubble-wrap and foam pieces. This requires a large investment of time, energy, ingenuity, organization and storage space- it is much easier and cheaper to buy new packing materials but I can’t justify taking the easy way out when so much packing material ends up polluting our earth. Our $3.00 charge does little to pay for the time (and storage) needed do this and to pack your item (there is also the time needed to get your package to the post office). This is something we’re happy to do for our customers and the environment. We appreciate your support in this area.
