True Mid-Century 1955 "Kraka" Bowl Orrefors Sven Palmqvist. She started collecting in the early 1980's and never stopped until the very end... This is a stunning piece of mid-century Orrefors dating from 1955. It measures 8" in diameter, 2.75" in height and weighs 5.2 LBS. It is an early, large and beautiful blue "Kraka" bowl by world renowned glass artist Sven Palmqvist. This bowl an exquiste example of the skillful artistry he preformed at ORREFORS GLASSWORKS in Sweden.
