A tradition of creating beautiful Scandinavian art glass began in the 1930s and continues today. The well known companies Orrefors, Kosta, iittala, Nuutajarvi Notsjo, Holmegaard, Riihimaen Lasi, and other less famous firms, have been on the creative edge of glass design for over three quarters of century. This long-awaited book chronicles their work in color and is a companion to the authors' earlier work on colorless, smoky, and engraved glass. This is the first book to cover all the major and many of the minor companies, revealing how each country (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway) had its particular color palette and style. With more than 700 full color photos, comprehensive design biographies, company histories, close-ups of labels and signatures, bibliography, index, and price guide, this volume will be indispensible to collectors, dealers, and scholars interested in Scandinavian glass and 20th century design.
