Form 1714 Suncatcher

Christer Sjögren, c.1965

Lindshammar Glasbruk, Sweden

£40 (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

A vintage, very large, and very scarce Form 1714 suncatcher in clear etched glass, with a pronounced sunburst or snowflake motif, designed by Christer Sjögren for Lindshammar in the mid/late 1960s.

The surface has been entirely acid-etched, done only as part of a unique client order rather than as standard production. It provides a diffuse glow when hung in a window, and stops the pattern being lost against busier backgrounds.

Being hand-pressed, using a method not unlike pressing a monogram into sealing wax, they necessarily incorporate a 'rusticated' look - often including random bubbles, uneveness and asymmetry. Consequently, each may differ slightly in size or appearance from the illustrations.

Each suncatcher comes with a hanging kit, consisting of a 50cm ball chain, two s-hooks, and a connector for the suncatcher, all in electro-polished stainless steel.
