A lovely right-facing lion crystal paperweight designed by Bertil Vallien for Kosta Boda Sweden. It was made as part of the modernist style Zoo Series of animals. The lion is flat on the backside and his large round head with fabulous textured mane frames his magnificent face. It's quite a charming piece which sparkles nicely, as do all the figures in the series.
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks. Circa 1975.
Size: 5-1/2" x 3-1/2"
