Sven Palmqvist exhibition glass goblet for Orrefors in a pink/red colour. At this time Orrefors would produce "expo" pieces for world fairs and trade exhibitions to show some of the new designs each year by leading designers. These were often made in very small numbers and many were never put into production. This one is cylindrical in shape and is signed and numbered 508-68. The last digits denote the year.

Excellent used condition.

Sven Palmqvist (1906-84)  worked for Orrefors in Sweden from 1941 to 1971. As well as producing etched glass of high quality in the 1940s he went on to design a number of ranges often deploying new glass techniques such as the Kraka, Fuga and Ravenna series. He was a major figure in the development of Swedish glass.
