Cast Glass Turtle, c.1965

Lindshammar Glasbruk, Sweden

£10 (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

A small and cute vintage glass figure of a turtle, produced by Lindshammar Glasbruk, Sweden, in the mid-late 1960s.

One of a series of naïve cast figures and animals intended as pocket-money collectables, each figure is individually hand-cast with plenty of impressed detail, as well as occasionally incorporating the foibles of hand-made glass processes - random bubbles, swirls and ripples.

It is 'new old stock', discovered in a Copenhagen glass warehouse that had closed its doors in the mid-1970s.
