A little history...

Glass from the Scandinavian region dates back at least to the 1700’s. Beginning in small towns with names associated with Nordic – Scandinavian glass companies today like Orrefors and Kosta, the small glass making communities eventually became the glass making companies. In Sweden, the glassworks The Scandinavian glass making communities, surrounded by ample forests filled with production resources, produced fine crystal, excelling in engraved and enamel décor, for hundreds of years.

In the late 1800’s, the community companies hired artists unfamiliar with glass making who joined with the local craftsmen. The coupling of glass craftsmen with great artists such as Simon Gate and the Bergkvist brothers, catapulted the region’s rise to world-renowned status. By the mid-20th century the Nordic region glassworks offered the world the finest of modern glass.

The glassworks of Scandinavia continue to produce utilitarian and glass art. In Sweden, a group of famous age-old glassworks, some still producing glass, is known as the Kingdom of Crystal. New glass, adapted to our energy starved economy, from the Nordic region is costly. Antique and vintage Scandinavian glass is widely collected by enthusiasts today and can be found at relatively reasonable prices.

The 1950’s ushered in the worldwide ‘Swedish Modern’ décor craze. The style was clean and sleek with flowing curves and imaginative colors. The Swedish Modern style was imitated by glassworks from other countries, endured for decades, and is popular again today.

Flygsfors glass was founded in Sweden in 1888 by Ernst Lundquist and August Zeltz. Paul Kedelv joined the company in 1949. His best known design for Flygsfors was the Coquille line, and Coquille means 'shell' in French.

Paul received his education at the National College of Art, Craft and Design in Stockholm, where he was taught by the world famous glass artist Edvin Ohrstom. He then worked for Orrefors from 1937 to 1946, and at Nuutajarvi Notsjo for 1 year before he came over to work at Flygsfors.

Inspired by both the shape and the rich colored gradients found inside seashells, Kedelv in 1952 designed the Coquille range of Swedish Art Glass which was distinguished by its organic and nautical forms with cased layers of transparent and opaque colored glass to mimic the heretofore mentioned gradients found inside the seashells. Kedelv turns the shell inside out, telling the seashell's color story on its outside while bringing us back into the shell on a deeper level through the glass's transparency. Remarkable.

The Coquille range became Flygsfors' most popular and world renown line of glass, and was produced into the early 60's.

In 1952, Flygsfors introduced multi-colored artistically designed glass, which became world famous in the manuel glass industry. In 1979, Orrefors closed the factory. At one time there were 240 employed here.

I love him! I was a little surprised at his size but I had the perfect place in my home. It's amazing how perfect he is considering his age. Thank you!
