About

Orrefors Ingeborg Lundin's "Apple" is a hand blown clear glass vase designed for Milan Triennial Exhibition in 1957. Orrefors believes this piece is one of the best illustrations of the graceful and daring glass of the 1950s. Incised signature to underside: [Orrefors Expo DU 32-57 Ingeborg Lundin].

Ingeborg Lundin was a Swedish glass artist born March 30, 1921 in Växjö and died in 1992. Lundin studied at the National College of Art in Stockholm where she also served as a drawing teacher. In 1947, Ingeborg Lundin became the first woman designer at Orrefors. She worked with both everyday glass and art glass.

She was awarded The Lunning Prize in 1954 and a gold medal at the Milan Triennial Exhibition in 1957, which earned her an international reputation. Throughout the 1950s Lundin exhibited repeatedly along with other glass artists from Orrefors at Nordiska Kompaniet, Småland Museum in Växjö, the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Röhsska Museum in Göteborg, Örebro Art Hall, Helsingborg Exhibition and the Orrefors Glassworks Museum. She also participated as an invited guest at the Spring Exhibition at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen in 1953. Lundin's glass pieces were represented in the major traveling exhibition "Design in Scandinavia" in the United States from 1954-1955. In 1971, she left Orrefors, but reappeared in the early 1990s with a unique series of glass made with Målerås Glassworks.
