Jonah and the Whale figure

Stock Number: 2218

This is what we believe to be a Jonah and the Whale figure designed by Vicke Lindstrand, manufactured by Kosta and dating from the mid 20th century, c1950.  

The figure is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear, including light scratching and flea bites to the rim of the base, commensurate with 60+ years of use. It has a "Kosta LG 2470" mark on the base.

Made in clear glass, the sculpture measures 18 cm (7.2 inches) in length and is 7 cm (2.8 inches) in height at its highest point. It weighs 622 gms. It features an intaglio cut Jonah sitting in the whale's stomach. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.
