Glass Hippopotamus from Kosta Boda’s Zoo Animals series circa 1970. The zoo animals are typically attributed to designers Bertil Vallien or Erik Hoglund. Kosta Boda was founded in Sweden in 1742.
Dimensions: 4.5" long x 3" tall
Condition: Very good. No chips or cracks. Stands well on its own. There are two tiny spots of darker color (translucent) on the front of hippo, one on rump and one on forehead. I've included closeup photos (see center of photos). Spots are approx 3mm long. May be from original manufacturing/mold release or rubbed against another object. Several tinier pinpoint spots on hippo's whiskers.
