About

This is the finest piece of glass I have ever offered. "Vatten Lek" (Water Games), an extraordinary piece by Edvin Öhrström, is decorated with dancing surrealistic figures created masterfully within the glass itself. This early (made in 1955) example of "Vatten Lek" is museum quality in every respect. Engraved "ORREFORS ARIEL 1955 E. Öhrström".
