This is a crystal figurine of a Viking, made by Lars Hellsten, a well known and acknowledged master of glass and crystal design. This sculpture was made for Skruf Glassbruk, Sweden, in the '60s.
It is in excellent vintage condition with no damage and only slight signs of wear. It is signed by Hellsten and includes Skruf and serial number.
It measures 13cm tall and weighs over 2 kg making it a perfect bookend or paperweight.
The design is stylish, innovative and modern. This face is vigorous, strong, inspiring force and strength, a design line that characterizes the entire work of this Swedish artist.
The technique used is mold-blown, or blown crystal In an mold, to obtain the shape and texture. It's a rarity and a true work of art, taking into account the fact that Lars Hellsten worked at Skruf for only 6 years from 1964-1971. Thereafter he worked for Orrefors.
